Historical Note

The Women’s Student Council was a governing body of Michigan Agricultural College’s co-eds. This body proposed rules for the female students as well as decided punishment for infractions of the college rules. The group went through several name changes during its history. The group became the Women’s League in 1920 and the Women’s Self-Government Association in 1922 when the group expanded to include representatives from other women’s groups. The name changed 1929 to the Associated Women Student Council. All women students were members of this association and it sponsored several social events every year. Starting in the 1970s the group was generally called the Women’s Council and it was a council under the Associated Students of MSU.
