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.
If there is not a currently active club that meets your interests, start your own! The benefits of having a club are:
All active student clubs receive $300 per academic year and it is kept in an account for the club managed by ASG. This money can be used for approved club activities. Clubs can request additional funding from the Associated Student Government (ASG) for larger events or off-campus events. These funds are available for the entire academic year (July - June) and any unused funds at the end of June are returned to ASG.
Clubs can fundraise for additional money, and this money can rollover to the next academic year if unused.
Clubs can apply for additional funds from the Event and Professional Development Funds.
For more information on clubs at LWTech, contact the Student Programs Director.
Develop an idea for your club. Clubs must align with the mission of LWTech and the Associated Student Government (ASG). Clubs should be for current LWTech students that have a common interest or purpose. First, review our list of currently active clubs to determine if there is a club you want to join that aligns with your interests. If there is not a club you are interested in joining you can start your own. At the bottom of this page you can see all clubs ever chartered to see if we have had a club that you are interested in starting. Once a club has been inactive for two years it needs to be re-started as a new club.
Clubs are for groups of students that want to have regular small, on-campus activities or events as a community around a common interest, program, or identity. These clubs do not require an advisor; Student Programs staff will support students with their activities. If you want to have frequent events or activities with the same group of students, having a club can be a helpful way to do that.
If you only have a few events during the year, and they are larger community building events and/or professional development opportunities, it is not necessary to continue as a club. Any student is eligible to request funding through the Community Building Event Fund or Professional Development Fund, so clubs are only necessary for students who want to do on-going activities.
Clubs are not required to have a minimum number of members, but we recommend having at least six (including officers). This is to ensure that clubs that receive funding from student fees are supporting a group of students and not just a few students' personal interests. If you are not sure how to find members or if you want to determine if students are interested before you commit to starting a club, contact Student Programs for assistance. Some members will need to be officers for the club. Each club needs at least one officer, who serves as the leader and main point of contact.
Help the Club Communicate…
Help the Club Grow:
Complete the Club Charter Form online. 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.
