Start a Club Funding, Starting and Sustaining a Student Organization

Whether you're starting a new organization or growing an existing one, Student Activities offers a number of resources to help.

Student Organization Application

Organizations must complete this application to be recognized by the Office of Student Activities. Benefits of recognition include the ability to reserve space in the Commons and elsewhere on campus, request a cubicle and advertise in the Commons, check out Outing Club equipment for group activities, participate in the Campus Activities Fair during Orientation Week, and be listed on the University's website.

Executive Committee Recognition for Student Organizations

All student organizations must be recognized by the Executive Committee of the Student Body (EC) in order to receive recognition and/or funding by the Washington and Lee University student body. Please read the EC's policy and fill out the Application for Recognition. The Office of Student Activities works closely with the Executive Committee of the Student Body to support their mission and function.

Organizations recognized by the Executive Committee may request funding in accordance with the Committee's Budget Policy. The policy, current budget allocations and the funding request form are available on the EC website.
