Fall 2013 Information
To: Attention Club Officers:
The Fall Activity Fair for recognized student organizations takes place on Saturday, August 17, 2013 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the Student Recreation & Wellness Center. To register your student organization for a table, go to http://www.bsu.edu/forms/studentlife/actfair2011/. Be sure to read the information prior to signing up for table space.
The fair provides an excellent opportunity for your student organization to recruit potential members and to get the word out about all of the good things you are doing on campus and in the community. The fair helps the organizations that participate, as well as the incoming students, who are looking for ways in which to become involved on campus.
Students make up the majority of those participating on Ball State Sport Club teams. However, full-time faculty and staff are also eligibile to participate on a club team. All active members of a sport club team must sign an Assumption of Risk Form prior to participation.
How to Join
To join a sport club, please contact the president of the desired sport. All members or interested participants must complete an Assumption of Risk Form and bring a copy of their BSU Photo ID. Please email both to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know which club you are particpating with.
As a captain you are responsible for working with the Office of Recreation Services to complete and submit all pertinent registration forms. Call or stop by our main office in SRWC Room 201A or call 765.285.1753. If you have questions, you may also reach us by e-mail at email@example.com.
As an office we understand that there is a consistent need to have access to funding to afford dues, travel and equipment. While our office allocates some money to clubs on a semesterly basis, it is important that clubs understand that fundraising is an important piece of the puzzle.
Our office provides many opportunities to assist with activities to raise money for their clubs. Football clean-ups, basketball clean-ups and events set-ups and tear-downs can earn your club anywhere from $100 to $250.
We offer a variety of other opportunities as well. Those could include sales for LIDS/Nike Fundraising.
There are also a number of web-based fundraising opportunities to get involved with such as:
