ASWOU stands for the Associated Students of Western Oregon University. On the most basic level we advocate for students! We are here to fight for student rights on campus, at the state level, and even the national level. On campus we strive to provide services for students to make life at Western better and more convenient. ASWOU breaks down into three branches: Executive, Legislative, and Judicial.
