Clubs at Suffolk
Our office, as well as student organization lounges and office space, are all located in the Sawyer Building.
Don’t see a club that interests you? To start a new one, follow these steps:
Indicate your interest
Stop by or email the Student Leadership and Involvement (at Sawyer 320) to setup an appointment to meet with the Associate Director, Casey Mulcare, with your club idea. He will setup a time to go over the steps with you. Before you meet, it's a good idea to...
Build your team
Talk to your fellow students and form a team of at least four students who will serve as executive (e-board) members, at least two other members who will be general members, and identify a faculty or staff member to serve as your advisor. Your e-board must have a 2.3 GPA or higher, and your advisor must be a current faculty or staff member at Suffolk University.
Create your foundation
Once your leadership team is formed, one or more members of the group should meet with Casey, who will provide you with a template constitution and club registration to fill out. Use the documents provided during the interest phase to create the group’s founding constitution.
Submit your materials
Email your final constitution and registration form to Casey, who will review them and be sure your group is ready to go.
Once you have completed all registration requirements, you will receive a memo announcing your official status and assigning you to a Program Advisor from the SLI office. They will to help you begin planning your meetings and events.
