Associated Students of Brigham Young University
- Existence: 1933 - 1988
The Associated Students of Brigham Young University (1933-1988) was a student government organization at Brigham Young University.
Student government at Brigham Young University began in 1909. It was refined in 1924 with the acceptance of a new constitution. The new constitution established an organization that included a president, first vice-president, second vice-president, secretary-historian, editors of two publications (Y News and Banyan), and a cheermaster. A student council that included university administrators was also part of the governing structure. The organization was know as the Student Body until 1933 when the title Associated Students of Brigham Young University (ASBYU) was first used. The student body organization would be known ASBYU until 1988 when a new constitution was implemented under the direction of President Jeffrey R. Holland and the name was changed to the Brigham Young University Student Service Association (BYUSA) to better reflect the organization's new service oriented role. One of the officers in ASBYU was the secretary-historian who was tasked with documenting as many of the activities of the student body as possible.
