How to Start a Club

Here are the steps to starting a student club or organization on campus:

  • Determine that your club is not a duplication of another club that already exists on campus.
    • Review the current list of clubs here, or email the Clubs and Organizations Coordinator, Heather Cimino ( to verify 
  • Review the C&O Tiered System to determine which tier your club will fall under 
  • Find a WSU faculty/staff member to be your club advisor 
  • Create a constitution (view sample constitution)
  • Determine/vote on presidency 
  • Find other students to join your club and create a roster of club members (required number of members dependent upon selected tier)
  • Complete the Clubs and Orgs Registration Form (required annually by each club/org)
