Re: Tips needed on starting a club in college!
I know that here at the college that I work for, something like this would not get off the ground. The institution will be looking at the liability of the clubs events. I am the advisor for the campus based “Outdoor Adventure Club.” We are very limited in the events that can be participated in, again, by Liability [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img].
If your institution will go along with this club, start by contacting the Student Activities Office. Explain to them your intentions. You probably will need a minimum membership. The Activities office will, usually, supply you with guide lines for running meetings, setting up a hierarchy of government, and how to fill out important forms for events. With this comes operating funds [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] for your club from the Student Government Association. Also, as Charlie stated, you will need an Advisor for the club that must be a full-time faculty member.
Good luck to you and I hope all goes well. Keep us informed as to what happens.
