Student Orgs

Overview

Student clubs and organizations at Gustavus Adolphus College provide the campus community with activities, programs and resources that enhance the quality of student life. Students who participate in co-curricular activities are more likely to succeed at both personal and professional goals, develop leadership skills, form lasting friendships with peers and learn more about a chosen career field. Gustavus Adolphus College is working to deliver a comprehensive activities program that encourages student participation in clubs and organizations related to both their personal and professional interests. The student organization recognition process serves new and prospective students, College departments and administrators by providing accurate information about those groups. The recognition of student groups is intended to clarify the rights, privileges and responsibilities of each. All student groups wishing to function officially on campus are required to complete this recognition process annually. Students with like interests may, of course, meet informally. Unlike recognized clubs and organizations, however, they may not use the name “Gustavus Adolphus College” in their name, utilize campus facilities and services, sponsor fund-raisers on campus, or apply for Student Senate funding. They may partner with recognized student groups and/or College departments if they wish.
