Modesto Junior College

ASMJC History

Before there was an actual building for Modesto Junior College there was the Associated Students of MJC (ASMJC).  From September of 1921 to December of 1923, the students of MJC attended classes at Modesto High School.  As a search was being conducted for a permanent home for MJC, students still came together in their second semester to form the Associated Students.  In December of 1923 Modesto Junior College's first building, South Hall was completed but was still without furniture and heat.  The study body was so excited to have a place to call home that they attended classes in South Hall while sitting on the floor.

In 1922 ASMJC held a vote of the student body to select the school mascot.  Blue Devil and Gorilla were early front runners before the students settled on the Pirates.  In 1935 ASMJC purchased the library which still stands today.  From 1922-1977 students elected a new student body president each semester.  In 1972, ASMJC elected its first female president ever. 

In the years since, 145 MJC students have held the title of student body president and thousands have served the students of MJC as executive officers and senators during their time as students.  Many alumni of ASMJC have gone on to very successful careers and have completed many acts of public service.
