Q: How do I form a New Club?
A: Pick up a New Club Registration Form and Steps to Success checklist in the Office of Student Life (Student Center, Room 2120). Once filled out and submitted, the Assistant Director of Student Life will contact you via e-mail to set up a New Club activation meeting. A club consists of Finger Lakes Community College Students who share a common interest. Under the advisement of the Assistant Director of Student Life, the club will spend a full academic semester as a Forming Club focusing on membership recruitment and retention with the goal of becoming a recognized New Club (and then ultimately an Established Club) of the Finger Lakes Community College Student Corporation.
Q: How does a Forming Club become a New Club?
A: Over the course of the full academic semester (fall or spring) of existence, the Office of Student Life will work with a Forming Club to 1) compose a constitution, 2) identify a faculty/staff advisor, 3) recruit members, 4) set up meeting times/locations, and 5) plan activities. Once a Forming Club has demonstrated the ability to sustain itself as an active part of student life on campus, the Forming Club leaders will present the constitution to the Student Assembly to request New Club status.
Q: How does a New Club become an Established Club?
A: After having served the campus community as a New Club for two full academic semesters, a New Club is eligible to become an Established Club. Once eligible, the New Club officers will present an updated constitution to the Student Assembly to request Established Club status.
Q: Who can participate in a Forming Club, New Club, or an Established Club?
A: All students pay a Student Activity Fee and are therefore officially members of the Finger Lakes Community College Student Corporation. All students who pay the Student Activity Fee are able to participate in all Forming Club, New Club, and Established Club activities.
