Recognized Organizations

 

Emporia State University has approximately 130 Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs) focusing on a wide range of interests including academic disciplines, honorary societies, arts, faith and religion, diversity, special interest, community service, recreation, sorority/fraternity, and more. RSOs are student-led organizations that have been officially recognized by the Associated Student Government (ASG). Students interested in learning about these student organizations can visit www.emporia.edu/hornetlife to view an organization directory and contact information for each organization.

RSOs have the privilege of scheduling campus facilities and requesting funds for activities from ASG. Allocation of student fees are made through the Student Senate. Information about ASG and the resources provided to RSOs is available at www.emporia.edu/asg.

HOW TO BECOME A RECOGNIZED STUDENT ORGANIZATION

The official recognition of a student group by Associated Student Government (ASG) grants to that group the following privileges:

 

  • use of the university name in conjunction with the organization's name,
  • scheduling of university buildings, properties, and facilities,
  • use of university marketing and mediums to promote organization events, and
  • requesting funding from Associated Student Government.

 

The RSO must agree to accept such regulations and administrative procedures as may be necessary to protect the essential functions of the university, to allow an equitable sharing of time and space, and to assure the reasonable health and safety of the campus community. As a matter of policy, ASG refrains from attempting to control or sway the personal opinions or beliefs of students. Recognition of a student group does not imply endorsement of positions taken by such a group. Responsibility for any actions that violate federal, state, or local laws or ordinances must be assumed by the individual groups, not by ASG or Emporia State University.
