Student clubs develop opportunities for LWTech students to connect to their college experience in interesting, challenging, and fun ways. Starting a club is an opportunity to build social networks, create academic connections, or learn something new.

For more information on clubs at LWTech, contact the Office of Student Life Director.
Develop an idea for your club. Ideas include having a club community connected to academic interest, social interest, hobbies, or identity.
Things to keep in mind about a new club:
Clubs are not required to have a minimum number of members, but we recommend having at least five (including officers). This ensures that clubs receiving funding from student fees are supporting a group of students and not just a few students' personal interests.
Finding members is easy! Talk with classmates and ask them. You may also ask Office of Student Life to assist you in finding members. Note that some members will be officers for the club. These officers will serve as the leader and main point of contact. This can change when more members join the club.
Complete the online Club Charter Form. This includes stating a purpose for the club, outlining expected activities and events, and identifying students who will lead the club (officers).
The Associated Student Government will review your Club Charter Form at their next weekly meeting. The Clubs Community Specialist will contact you if there are questions about your request. If your club is approved, clubs officers will need to complete an officer training to learn about running a club. After the officers receive training you are eligible to begin planning campus activities.
All new officers, club members, or chosen members will attend workshops before they may access any funding or purchase any supplies.
