Biographical history

The Canberra University College Students' Association was formed in April 1932 as the representative body of the students of the College. Its aims were to provide a means of communication between the students and the Council of the College, to promote the social life of students and to represent students in matters affecting their interests. It was managed by a General Committee initially, then a Students' Representative Council. It produced an annual magazine 'Prometheus' and a student newspaper 'Woroni'. There was also a subordinate Sports Union with a Sports Council which included a delegate from each sports club. When the Canberra University College and the Australian National University amalgamated in 1960 the association effectively merged with the Australian National University Students' Association.
