What is the Difference Between a Subgroup, Affiliate, and Classes?

  1. A Subgroup is a group that is run through Gustavus Adolphus College and includes groups like: athletics, Inter Greek Senate, Campus Activities, Student Organizations, Career Development, Chaplains/Church Relations, Community-Based Service and Learning, Diversity Center, and Residential Life. Each subgroup can contain their own set of subgroups and they all can post their own service opportunities for students to volunteer with.
  2. An Affiliate is a group that is run by an off campus office. Affiliates can post their own service opportunities and their will be posted to the Gustavus Adolphus Page for students to register for.
  3. Classes are courses offered at Gustavus Adolphus College that can be sorted by year and archived after the academic year is over. These courses can have events with shifts for students to register for and allow them to record their impacts.
