Associated Students

Drop Shadow


Hello Toreros!

I am incredibly excited to be returning to Associated Students for the 2013-2014 academic year, serving as the Communication Chair. I will be overseeing the Communication Board, which is comprised of the Directors of Marketing, Public Affairs, Social Media, and our Web Director. The Communication Board is wholly dedicated to ensuring that all Associated Students events and initiatives are marketed and promoted to the entire USD undergraduate student body. I will also be serving as a liaison between University administrators and students to make certain that both parties are fully aware of what is happening on campus.

Some of my goals for this year include:

  • Furthering Associated Student’s transparency with the student body through frequent marketing campaigns, and utilizing many different promotional mediums.
  • Create new and innovative ways for students to be able to promote and market events, as well as enhance the current means of mass communication.
  • Continue to make Associated Students social media a fun and interactive way for the undergraduate student body to find out about AS events and initiatives.
  • Increase the overall number of students who both hear about, and attend, Associated Students sponsored events through exciting marketing campaigns and bolstered school spirit.

I am currently a junior, majoring in Finance with minors in Political Science and Communication Studies. Besides Associated Students, I am also a member of the Alcala Club and a Vision Team Member of Intervarsity Christian Fellowship. If I am not focused on my class work or my extracurricular duties, I am probably out with friends, catching a movie, or out exploring the wonderful city that we live in, San Diego!

I invite you to “like” us on Facebook, follow us on twitter and read our blog for more AS updates. Please feel free to stop by my desk in SLP 312, send me an email, or come to an AS event; I would love to hear from you!

Edson, Colby
