Biographical History

Associated Women Students of Brigham Young University was a group from the late 1950's to the 1970's whose responsibilities included planning Preference Dance, Homecoming, and The Preferred Man Contest. They also sponsored activities such as Big and Little Sisters that matched incoming freshmen women to upperclassmen to aid in the transition to college. The Associated Women Students of Brigham Young University organized Women's Week, which was to provide an opportunity to strengthen bonds between themselves, their mothers, and other women.
