2014-2015 New RSOs register here!
Registered Student Organization re-registration for the 2014-2015 academic year will open April 15, 2014. All returning RSO's that plan to be active during the 2014-2015 academic year must complete the registration process between April 15 and September 15, 2014. All paperwork and database links are available here.
New RSO's are eligible to form at any time during the academic year. Returning RSOs that miss the April-September window will be able to re-register for the Spring semester in January 2015 but will not have priveleges during the Fall 2014 semester.
RSO privileges for the 2013-2014 academic year expire June 30, 2014, so the Office of Student Activities recommends re-registration prior to leaving for summer.

Get Involved with an RSO
Registered student organizations (RSOs) provide students the opportunity to form and develop organizations based on a common interest. Students are able to create, govern, budget and plan their own organization and events. Through your involvement with an RSO you will meet new people, develop your interest and have fun.
