The core mission of the ASA Students Committee is to advocate for and support the needs of student members of the ASA. We work throughout the year and at the annual conference to facilitate dialogue among students, and to identify and develop ways ASA membership can empower graduate students and enhance their professional development.
ASA 2012 Annual Meeting, San Juan, PR
At the American Studies Association annual meeting this year, in San Juan, the Students Committee will be hosting a number of events tailored to both undergraduate and graduate student needs, including workshops, roundtables and panel discussions.

Graduate Student Roommate Connection Service
Twelve years ago, the Students Committee initiated a Roommate Connection Service for graduate students attending the annual ASA conference. The Committee will continue to offer this service for students attending the San Juan conference. Rather than having to post your request for a roommate to a list, the Students Committee will act as a clearinghouse for students looking to share space.
Any student (or faculty) seeking a roommate need only send a message to the Students Committee. The Committee will, in turn, forward your message on to any other student(s) that seem to be a “match.” You will handle all the arrangements from there.
This service is available to all graduate students attending the ASA Conference. Please note that by submitting a request to the Roommate Connection Service, you give us permission to forward the entire contents of your message to other students seeking roommates. If the roommate connection works out, please RSVP back to the Students Committee so we can take your names off of our list.
