Student Activities and Organizations



How do I find a Registered Student Organization or club (RSO)? All registered Clubs and Organizations are highlighted in (blue) on the Student Activities and Organizations page.


What is a Registered Student Organization or club? A Registered Student Organization, club and/or association is a student organization that has been recognized through the Offices of Student Activities & Organizations. All RSOs must re-apply for recognition on an annual basis.


How can I start a new RSO? New RSOs may start during the application period (the link is in the Club Registration Forms Documents section) of the Office of Student Activities & Organizations section. Petitions to start a NEW ORGANIZATION or club are accepted twice yearly in the Spring semester (beginning January 15 ending March 15) and in the Fall semester (beginning August 15 ending September 25) . Registered student organizations must have open membership policies unless they are constitutionally required to be a competitive selective Club, Greek Organization, and have satisfied all university requirements to be recognized with such a designation. All petitions must be submitted to the Office of Student Activities & Organization to initiate and then, approved for the recognition process.


Re-activation of an inactive registered student organization occurs during the fall semester (ONLY) beginning August 15 ending September 25.
