Background

The first meeting of the Association of Women Students (AWS) occured on May 26, 1911. Occasionally the organization was also known as the Women's Self Government Association (WSGA). The purpose of the organization was to cooperate with the Associate Dean for Women to establish and enforce rules governing women living in university residence halls. In addition, the Association founded and organized the Coed Follies, a farcical theatrical program performed annually. The AWS disbanded on April 8, 1970.
