Find Interested Oles

Find a group of at least 10 Oles who are interested in starting an org with you. Be sure that your new org is unique and non-duplicative. (You can find a list of all current orgs on Presence.)

*If applying for a new multicultural or service organization, you need a group of at least 7 Oles.


Find an Advisor

This can be any St. Olaf staff or faculty who shares your passion or interest in your new organization!

Your advisor can help you connect with other interested Oles, navigate group dynamics, and brainstorm ideas for how to run your organization and possible events to plan.


Write a Constitution

Team up with your group of interested Oles to write a constitution for your student organization. Refer to the guidelines below to fulfill all requirements.
