Begin by Exploring Existing Organizations
Before forming a new student organization, we encourage you to stop by Student Activities, located in Suite 300 of the Hughes-Trigg Student Center, and research the existing student organizations.
You may find that there is currently a group of people with the same interests as yours who are eager for new member. They want talent, ideas, enthusiasm, and commitment.
If You Still Want to Start an Organization
The Student Activities staff and the Student Senate Organization Chair are excellent resources with which to discuss your idea.
Read the SMU Student Organizations Manual for detailed steps to form a new student organization. The manual was developed as a resource for all student organizations. Though the manual outlines some of the policies that organizations must follow, it is important to remember that all organizations are expected to follow the Student Code of Conduct and their own governing documents.
