All events hosted by the AOSA are meant to better connect you with this great profession and are aligned with one of our four pillars: Education, Advocacy, Student Experience, and Tools for Success.

AOSA events range from large-scale national meetings to individual chapter events at each school. We encourage you to get as involved as you can.
