Administrative history

The first meeting of the Agricultural Students' Association of the University of Saskatchewan was held on 20 March 1920. It was formed as "a result of the cessation of the War, with its consequent effects in student enrollment." With greater numbers of students, "many new organizations [appeared, which] caused considerable overlapping in student activities with no central body in control." At the request of his fellow students, 4th-year president J.B. Harrington called a general meeting of College of Agriculture students on 10 February 1920. A subcommittee was formed to draft a constitution; that constitution was approved, and the ASA officially formed, in March. Among the objectives of the Association was the development of rural leadership and the promotion of agricultural education in the province; although, as with most student organizations, its primary function was to promote fellowship among the students and to serve as a medium of communication between students and faculty.
