SGA-Sponsored Interest Clubs

The student government association serves as the governing body for interest clubs not associated with an institutional department or major.

Interest clubs generally exist at the initiative of students. Their success or failure
depends on the demand for them and the ingenuity of the members. In the past 10
years, several interest clubs have ceased to exist while others have taken their place.

Initiating an interest club and becoming a fully authorized club requires:

  • at least 10 students interested in being members of the club
  • a faculty or staff advisor who meets with the club at least once a semester
  • a club constitution (subsequent amendments must be approved by SGA and the Department of Student Life)
  • approval by SGA and the Department of Student Life

Campus facilities are generally available for use by recognized clubs, and the senate
might help with project funding.
