Clubs and Organizations

LSCC Student Organization Annual Registration
In order to help us know which organizations are active from year to year we ask that each student organization provide an annual update of members and officers. We also need to have a clear record of the advisor for the academic year. 

Petition for Recognition as a Student Organization
When petitioning for recognition as a new student organization, the following will be among the first considerations: Please explain how the new organization is distinct from existing student organizations and why the organization’s purpose cannot be achieved through existing organizations.
