Some of the more popular reasons to become involved include:

  • The social atmosphere
  • Exposure to professionals in the business community (networking is the number one way people find jobs)
  • Involvement in community service projects
  • Interaction with other students who have the same academic and professional goals and ambitions
  • Increased contact with Albers School faculty
  • Resume enhancement with activities outside the classroom.

From a Past Board Member

Brandon Connor

Having served on student councils in the past, I knew the great sense of community which they are capable of building within the student body. I again wanted to be a part of the creation of that fellowship and be a part of the community. AGSA not only gave me the opportunity to build relationships among students, but to begin developing relationships with and give back to the surrounding Seattle community.
