RSO Policies

General Policies

  • If you invite an outside business to come to a meeting to help fulfill a need of your organization, this may be acceptable, but outside businesses should not approach students or student groups to invite themselves or to offer money, products, or event sponsorship in return for access to your organization. The Commercial Solicitation Policy prohibits private commercial business activities on University premises.  Exceptions are the annual RazorBash Festival held during Welcome Weeks (and for off-campus properties, Housing Fairs coordinated by Off-Campus Student Services). To summarize - Organizations should never feel that you must endure solicitation by outside businesses who want access to your RSO or living group. If this happens, we ask that you report the incident to your faculty/staff advisor and the Office of Student Activities.
