Student Organizations

Student organizations are critical players within our active and engaged campus community.

The Office of Student Activities is committed to investing in our student organizations because we recognize the impact that they have on the St. Olaf experience, on our physical campus, and on the greater community beyond the Hill. Our office mission is rooted in empowering students to discover and define their passions, themselves, and their communities. Student organizations, from our perspective, are vehicles for students to do just that. Whether you are a student organization leader looking for resources, hoping to start a new student organization, or simply looking to get involved. Our office is here to help.

Are you a member of a student organization on campus? Don’t forget to complete our annual OrgEssentials training!


Whether you are an incoming Ole searching for ways to get involved or an upperclass student looking to try something new, there is a student organization for everyone! Take a look through Presence to see what opportunities are out there!

  2. Identify a staff/faculty advisor – anyone who shares your passion or interest in your organization.
  3. Draft an organization constitution. Examples can be found on
  4. Complete an online organization recognition form.
  5. Connect with the Student Organizations Committee of SGA. They will reach out and share next steps. You will likely meet with SOC virtually or in-person.
