Start a New Club

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.

The benefits of having a club are:

  • having a connected sense of community.
  • being in a safe space to share and promote your interests with like-minded people.
  • use of the LWTech name and logo
  • ability to fund-raise on campus
  • plan campus activities with support from Campus Life
  • representation of your group at Associated Student Government (ASG) meetings
  • free use of campus rooms

For more information on clubs at LWTech, contact the Office of Student Life Director.

Process for Starting a New Club

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:

Find Members and Officers

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. 

Help the Club Communicate…

  • Organize and chair club meetings.
  • Keep records of meetings, minutes, travel, and expenditures
  • Organize or oversee publicity for club activities
  • Ensure club compliance with your club's procedures, the ASG Constitution and By-Laws, the Club Handbook, the ASG Financial Code, and other applicable rules and regulations.

Help the Club Grow:

  • By using support services from Office of Student Life and ASG, recruit new club members.
  • Let Office of Student Life know about new members. It helps us market your club to the larger college community.
  • Develop and use the club’s budget.
  • Complete and submit an quarterly form for recognition to ASG to maintain your status as a recognized student organization.
  • Approve all fundraising activities and expenditures made by 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 membefrs will attend workshops before they may access any funding or purchase any supplies.
