At Hood, it is not only possible, but absolutely encouraged to start your own organization. It’s a simple process and a great plan if you cannot find the ideal organization you’ve been picturing as something perfect for you to join and get involved in. In order to begin a new club, first, go to the student life office to pick up a new organization packet. You will need to fill out this packet which includes questions for you to answer, a signature sheet for potential members and guidelines to craft an executive board and a constitution.
Completed packets should be brought to student life and from there, they will be sent to the HCSGA chair of student life where they will be reviewed by the Student Life committee. You will have a chance to meet with the Student Life committee to go over your constitution. After edits and approvals, you will have the opportunity to present your club and constitution to the senate for approval. If approved as an organization in senate, the club will move to a vote in the executive board for approval. If you are approved in both governmental bodies, you will officially be an organization! After becoming an official club, please fill out the active status form so the student life office has your up-to-date meeting room and executive board.
