To register your organization, fill out the online form and email a club logo to email@example.com. *Registration for the Activities Fair will register you for the current academic year
Starting a club at Rensselaer is different depending on numerous factors. Find out more about how to start a club recognized by Rensselaer Union by referencing online materials and then stopping in to talk to a Student Activities staff member.
Rensselaer Union clubs are each assigned a Student Activities Resource Person, or SARP. A SARP is a staff member assigned to clubs as a resource of institute knowledge and policy. These individuals may serve in an official capacity guiding students through paperwork, in addition, SARPs may act as advisors to student organizations, providing a sounding board to help student groups flush out new ideas and provide insight to best practices. Though student groups outside of Rensselaer Union may not be assigned a SARP, student organizations registered with the institute may still seek out these individuals for help and guidance from Rensselaer Union staff. To get help from a SARP, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any club sports team or other Rensselaer Union organization budgeted to travel to competitions and events will need to follow Club Travel guidelines to successfully travel and receive reimbursement allotted within their club budget.
