Clubs and Organizations Recognition

The Bethany Lutheran College Student Senate encourages students to form Student Activity Groups on campus. Student Activity Groups include clubs, organizations, and events. In order to be eligible to receive funding and be allowed to advertise for events, Student Groups must complete a recognition packet and then submit it to, and have it approved by, Bethany Student Senate.

Starting in the spring prior to, or at the fall of a new academic year, new and returning clubs, organizations, and events must complete the Student Activity Groups Recognition Packet. This packet includes a guide for writing a constitution.

Once officially approved, any Student Activity Group may request funding from Student Senate by filling out a Financial Request Form two weeks ahead of the date requested. If funding is granted, groups are also asked to fill out a Post-Funding Report Form (provided in same PDF as the initial request form).

Completed Recognition Packets should be submitted to the Student Senate's Internal Affairs Chairperson, given to another senator, or addressed to Senate and placed in on-campus mail.

Once approved, Student Senate will notify you of your recognition and ability to advertise and receive funds.

Completed Financial Request Forms and Post-Funding Report Forms should be submitted to the Student Senate's Financial Affairs Chairperson, given to another senator, or addressed to Senate and placed in on-campus mail.

If you have any questions, please contact the Student Body President, Karee Henrich
