The Office of Student Activities strives to provide a connection for students through extracurricular activities around campus. From student clubs/organizations to events and programs, the Office of Student Activities aims to provide current students and alumni a sense of belonging to Emory & Henry.
Campus groups include performing groups, Greek organizations, honorary societies, and many others, including representative groups such as Emory Activities Board & Student Government Association.
All student organizations operating on the Emory & Henry College campus must be approved by the Office of Student Activities and the College Senate of the Student Government Association. Students wishing to form new organizations must submit their request through the “Intent to Register” google form. In this form, groups will find a place to add a copy of the organization’s constitution along with a list of officers, charter members, and the advisors.
Requirements to start a new organization/club are the following:
5 active student members are interested in the organization. You will need their names and emails.
1 student to serve as the President (can be part of the 5 students).
Any existing social media accounts or outside websites (if applicable)
Contact information for the organization
1 faculty or staff member to serve as an advisor
Name and mission/purpose of the organization
Membership dues (if any)
Your organization’s constitution/bylaws (sample constitution available from the Director of Student Activities)
Students wishing to form or reinstate a Greek social organization must submit a written request and a copy of the organization’s constitution along with a list of officers, charter members, and advisors to the Greek Council or governing body of Greek organizations. This documentation may be presented through the Office of Student Activities. The Greek Council or governing body of Greek organizations shall act upon such requests and submit recommendations to the College Senate for consideration within four weeks of receiving the request.
Any college organization engaged in a money-making project on campus must clear the project with the Director of Student Activities, Emily Bishop. College organizations soliciting funds or advertisements from persons and/or businesses off campus may do so only with the written approval of the Director of Student Activities, in conjunction with the Office of Institutional Advancement.
Please note that activities must benefit the college community in a way that is consistent with the College’s educational mission. In addition, if a fundraiser activity is being conducted to benefit an outside agency, the organization must submit a letter of approval from that agency prior to the activity being approved and scheduled. Request forms should be submitted for approval to the Director of Student Activities at least two weeks prior to the desired event.
For more information and forms concerning forming a new organization, planning fundraising events, and planning general events, please contact Emily Bishop,email@example.com.
