How to Start a Student Organizations
- Make sure that your idea doesn’t already exist doesn’t already exist as a club. Check with Campus Activities (upstairs Worner).
- Assemble a committed group of students. Not just three of your friends that like the idea but an actual group of students that are interested, invested and ready to take the initiative.
- Alright! Think of a catchy name or acronym, put up flyers and hold a meeting! At your first meeting, make sure to:
- Figure out the mission statement of your group. Are you based on service and learning? Do you just want to have fun? What is the purpose of the group?
- Take notes!
- Take attendance!
- What are events that the group wants to sponsor? Are there any other groups on campus that are similar or may be good to partner with?
- Does the group want recognized or chartered status? See #4
- Plan a regularly scheduled meeting time/place
- Recognized v. Chartered Status. Recognition means that the group can use CC facilities, can apply to use CCSGA funding and after a year of recognition can apply for Chartered Status. What does Chartered Status mean? Being a Chartered group means that the group can use CC’s name, can apply for a yearly operational budget, and use CC’s Central Services (ie print flyers, receive mail). For either of these recognitions, applications are due to CCSGA each semester. There is also a blockly review of the club that needs to be sent into CCSGA. Please see their website for more information and the physical applications.
- You have started to establish a club! If you need to reserve a room or have questions regarding reserving a room, contact Lynnette DiRaddo at the Worner Desk. If you need any further assistance in finding like Clubs or figuring out cool events to do, see Bethany Grubbs or one of the Interns in the Campus Activities Office!
Colorado College Student Government Association (CCSGA)
As the 2009-2010 Colorado College Student Government Association, we commit ourselves to representing the students of The Colorado College by proactively addressing their concerns and supporting their endeavors. Student government acts as a constructive resource for the student body.
Dance Workshop seeks to bring dance to the entire CC community. Run entirely by students from varying degrees of experience, DW puts on one diverse show each semester. Each show showcases dance styles ranging from modern and hip hop, to Bollywood and salsa. All levels of dancers and choreographers are encouraged to try out.
Theatre Workshop is a student-run, student-directed, student-produced theatre company designed to offer students unique artistic opportunities while providing entertainment to the greater CC community. We produce two full-length plays each semester, and also host a ten-minute play writing competition once a year. We also have a fund available for smaller, independent theatrical projects. Theatre Workshop runs out of Taylor Theater, in Bemis Hall.
