Town Students Association

Posted on July 17, 2017

The Town Students Association was formed in 1929, as the Day Students Association, as a campus organization for (per their Constitution) “All students who do not live in the residence halls,” with the goal of encouraging and facilitating greater participation by these students in college activities. This organization became the Town Students Association in 1935. In 1965, two years after the Woman’s College became the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and a year after the first male students arrived on campus, Anthony Thompson became the first male vice president of the Town Students Association, a development that at the time, proved quite unpopular with a great number of women students. In 1983, the Town Students Association changed its name to the Commuting Student Association, to reflect the growth in the population of students commuting from outlying areas of Greensboro.
