If you are interested in revitalizing any of these organizations, please contact Student Activities at for more information on how to get any of these organizations restarted.

Student organizations who have not (re)registered, submitted incomplete registration packets, or submitted incomplete contact updates for the current academic year are considered not recognized or in good standing with the College. Once a student organization applies for (re)recognition or submits a completed contact update form, their listing will be moved to the appropriate category on this list, they will be eligible to get funding from student government, and utilize campus resources.

Didn’t find what you’re looking for?

Just because you didn’t find it listed doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist - don’t forget that student organizations can vary from year to year depending on student interest. Visit this site regularly for the most up-to-date information about student organizations and please contact Student Activities at if you’re interested in revitalizing any of the organizations listed as not currently recognized (inactive).

Student Organization Recognition

All student organizations must be recognized with Student Activities. Student Organizations that were active during the 2015-2016 academic year can submit their organization’s new contact information for the year by completing the Student Organization Contact Update form.

Recognized student organizations are eligible to get and use an email account (or get the account’s password reset) and associated Google Group, get a LiveWhale Profile, reserve campus facilities with Conferences and Events, apply for space for your organization (an annual process conducted in the spring), promote your organization’s events on The Bark and the Campus Display System, and apply for funding from ASLC.
