Historical Note

The Student Assembly was established "for the purpose of arranging the various departments of student enterprises under a centralized head, and to secure united action upon all questions which may come before this organization." The Student Assembly initially consisted of three departments: the Athletic Department; the Department of Oratory and Debate; and the Department of Publications, which was reponsible for publication of the College Barometer. The Assembly was subsequently known as the Associated Students of Oregon State College (or University).
