Start a Student Organization

Interested in getting involved, but don't see an organization that interests you?  Visit Student Life to talk about starting a new student organization. Starting an organization is a great way to explore your interests, gain interpersonal skills and make new friends who share your interests. 

  • I want to start a new student organization. How do I get started?
    1. Review the current list of student organizations on campus to ensure one hasn't already been founded
    2. Find interested students and an advisor
    3. Schedule a time to meet with Student Life for approval and guidance
  • What else should I know about starting a new student organization?
    • When you gather for meetings, socials, dances, service projects, community service, as an organization, you are representing the College. Keep this in mind during all activities and maintain a professional demeanor.
    • All members of a student organization who have been chosen, delegated, or elected into a leadership role within the organization must have a minimum of a cumulative GPA of 2.5 the semester before, during, and after the tenure of your role within the organization.
    • No organization members may obligate or commit the College in any way without discussing the matter with your advisor and/or the Coordinator of Student Life.
