Student Organizations Committee

About the Student Organizations Committee

SOC is a branch of SGA that funds and recognizes clubs, making them official student organizations at St. Olaf. Student organizations can request funding for their events, speakers, equipment, etc. If they want to do something as a group, SOC can try and help. We help to put the resources of the college behind the student organizations so they can go out and do what they love to do. You can direct any questions to Nazareth Salazar Toruño (salaza3@stolaf.edu).

So, you want to start an organization?

1.

Get a group of people together, and start having meetings. You’ll need a group of interested and passionate people to have a successful organization.

2.

Make sure you have SEVEN members. You’ll need a minimum of seven to be approved by SOC.

3.

Find a faculty/staff advisor. This person can be anyone who shares your passion or interest in your organization.

4.

Fill out the appropriate recognition form below. If your organization is something that will stick around for years, fill out the “Organization Recognition Petition.” If you only plan to do a temporary project, fill out the “Temporary Project Recognition.” Part of the “Organization Recognition Petition” is creating a detailed constitution. Please read the instructions for your constitution included in the form. Your constitution MUST have a very clear non-discrimination clause.

7.

Wait for an email from SOC. We will review new student organizations on a rolling basis during the remote learning period.

8.

Get a response from SOC! We will take a few days to review your application as a committee. If recognized, Nazareth will send you an email with more details about being an organization on campus.
