***IMPORTANT UPDATES***

  • USG OrgLife
    • This is the new platform (similar to OrgSync) for student organizations. 
    • THIS IS WHERE YOU WILL OFFICIALLY REGISTER YOUR STUDENT ORGANIZATION!
    • This is where you will find and submit all forms (catering, space request, funds request and so forth) and also where you will get to communicate with all student leaders on campus as well as me. 
    • ALL students in any clubs and/or student organizations MUST download USG OrgLife available on apple and google app store (free) - PC version soon to become available. 
    • Every student must fill out the survey (only once) after downloading the app (this is a must and very important).
    • I will be holding training sessions - at least a President or Vice President must attend for student orgs to be considered official. We want to set you all up for success and improve communication among all of us :-) We will also provide lunch and dinner during the training sessions.

Do student orgs ever get together to celebrate and be recognized for all of the hard work they've done throughout the year?
Absolutely! We get together in May at the Student Engagement Recognition Awards Ceremony and recognize all of the students orgs and individuals that have made a positive impact on the USG community & beyond.  Students get to dress up and after the awards ceremony is done everyone gets to party the night away with a DJ, food, and a sense of accomplishment! We look forward to celebrating with YOU in 2019!
