Clubs and Organizations

All students are urged to participate in any student organization. There are few restrictions involved in forming student clubs. There are no limitations to club size and any number of individuals may form an organization after obtaining a faculty or staff advisor and completing necessary paperwork. An organization must be officially recognized by the Student Government Association and the College prior to requesting and utilizing College facilities for activity purposes.
