Idaho Falls Student Organizations and Clubs are a great way to get involved on campus. Getting involved in a club helps students to meet new people, develop talents, learn new skills, and create connections that will enhance the college experience. If there isnít a club that fits your interest, start your own! Our clubs participate in campus and community events, volunteer in the community, and put on fun club activities. Each recognized club is eligible to receive funding from ASISU to spend on refreshments, activities, etc. Check out our list of clubs for contact information, and join/start a club today!
Start a New Club:
Students are welcome to start a club if none of the existing clubs match their interest. Here are a few things to get you started:
- Idaho Falls Club must have at least 8 full fee paying members (staff and faculty may be associate members of clubs, but do not count toward the membership requirement).
- A full time faculty or staff advisor
- Each club must have a constitution outlining their purpose, officer election rules, and so forth. The club constitution must be approved by the office of Student Organizations and Greek Life, before it can be presented to Senate.
- Clubs must be approved through the student senate
- Read through the attached manual for more detailed information.
- Feel free to e-mail or call Ches Barnes (firstname.lastname@example.org or 282-7866) or Karen Larsen (email@example.com or 282-7865) with questions and to set up a meeting about starting a club. You are also welcome to stop by our office in room 204 of the Bennion SUB.
Where to Go:

Reserve Room for Club Meeting:

It adjoins the Student Activities office in Bennion SUB room 211A. To reserve, first check with the Student Activities Board Ė Idaho Falls Director, to make sure there are no conflicting meetings taking place. Make sure to fill out an Event Registration Form and contact Karen at 282-7865. An Event Registration Form is required for all club events and meetings.
