Resources and Opportunities for Organizations

Update Your Officers in the Student Org Database

If your student organization has recently transitioned the President, Treasurer, or Adviser positions, don't forget to update them via the online Compliance Agreement Form on the Student Organization Database!

And remember to check out all the useful features available to your club in the Student Org Database

  • Display all your club's photos in the photo gallery application.

  • Use the calendar feature to list events and meetings for your org's members and anyone who visits your webpage. Students can also subscribe to your calendar so that your events show up on their personal calendar within the student org database, which can be found under "MyStuorg," and then "Calendar."

  • Once you create your event on the calendar, you can have event attendees check in with a prox card or card swipe reader that collects participant names in a database within your website. You can then pull an attendance report at any time.

  • Manage your subscribers! Students, faculty, staff and anyone with an account can subscribe to your org to get announcements in addition to the info on your calendar. Be sure to visit the "Manage Subscribers" page to see who's subscribing to your org and invite others. Once you have a list, you can create and send announcements to those subscribers within the site.

If you need any help with these features, the Student Activities Center is here to help!
