Student organizations are a great way to get involved in campus life. Participation and membership in a campus club, organization, or group will make an impact on your student experience and community, help you develop new skills and hone existing skills based on what you've learned in the classroom, enable you to make new friends with similar interests, and have fun!
Currently, Marian University has over 55 registered undergraduate student organizations representing a wide range of hobbies, majors, and special interests. If you can't find a student organization that aligns with your interests, start your own.
Our office distributes Knightly News, Marian University's weekly enewsletter for students, every Sunday. The Knightly News is a great way to promote your event or make a large-scale announcement. To submit an announcement, complete our Knightly News Announcement Request Form located under "Forms" in the Student Life portal. Please submit the form no later than Thursday for Sunday publication. In addition, add your event to the main university calendar on marian.edu using LiveWhale and tag Student Life or create one in Connect.
First step of a successful event should always be creating an event on Connect in your student organization's portal. This allows you to share it with the large campus calendar on Connect, collect RSVPs, and also prompts you on reminders such as IT, room reservations, etc.
Another great way to promote your event while also going green is posting your flier on the digital screens located across campus. These screens are on a constant loop of announcements and have a large audience. To post your event visit marian.edu/marcom and submit your request.
Marian University Policy for Posting Fliers on Campus
This policy applies to all on campus advertising at Marian University. All fliers must be stamped “Approved by Student Affairs” or if they are ministry related, “Campus Ministry Approved.”
Student organizations and campus departments are responsible for the removal of postings after the event or at the expiration date. Unapproved, expired or improperly posted fliers will be removed and recycled.
Violation of this posting policy may result in loss of posting privileges and possibly further sanctions.
All student organizations must have a Senator that attends SGA Senate meetings every other week. These meetings consist of representatives from each organization. At each meeting there is an opportunity to make an announcement which is another avenue to spread the word!
Promoting in person is always the best way. If you are interested in reserving a table in Alumni Hall or Dining Commons to hand out fliers, giveaways, or just talk to students who are passing by please email Robin Spearin at email@example.com.
Questions or for more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 317.955.6318.
Connect offers many features that makes being a student organization a lot easier, including:
Contact any Student Activities staff to help your organization best utilize Connect.
