Clubs/Organizations are required to keep an updated roster to stay in good standing and get funding from SGA. Joining an organization means that you are an active member of the club/organization. To join an organization, find the club/organization you are interested in joining from the "Organizations" tab from the main menu on the main page. When you find the organization you are interested in you can click on it to find out more information about the organization. In the middle of the screen, you will see the option to "Join" as well as to "Contact". Joining will require approval from the organization so if you are not an actual member you may be denied. Clicking Contact will open up an email and allow you to send a message to the contact person for that organization.

Once on the events page, you can see all the events that are upcoming, in chronological order, or you can narrow your choices by using the search.
