Training and Service
Each semester the Office of Campus Activities hosts a series of workshops for student organizations.
For most student organizations, these sessions are mandatory. There are a few sessions that are required for certain organizations. Details can be found on the links on the right side of this page.
- The mandatory student organization training for Fall 2023 will occur Tuesday, August 29th, Wednesday, August 30th, and Thursday, August 31st. These trainings will take place every hour on the hour from 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm in The Nest (Pryz 300). All student organizations must send at least two representatives in order to remain active -- any member is free to attend, but we highly recommend that both the President and Treasurer attend a session, even if not together. You will also have the opportunitiy to sign up for your Fall Fest table at the completion of your training.
