Student Organization Handbook

The Student Organization Handbook has a lot of information that will be useful to you, click here to download it.

Creating an Organization

In order to create a new student organization, you need at least three student members and one faculty advisor. The advisor does not necessarily have to be from your campus, but it is typical as advisors need to be available to help students. Advisors are required to be eligible for benefits from ASU, meaning that they must be employed full-time by ASU. Talk to professors or faculty that are invested in what your organization is about. If you have difficulty finding an advisor, contact Ernesto for assistance.

Once you have three members and one advisor, you must create a constitution. A sample constitution can be found by clicking click here.


There are many cabinets available in the Student Organization Space (room L1-15 in the Post Office) for student organizations to use for storage. Contact Ernesto for more information.

Resource Rentals

Do you need something to spice up your event? How an A-Frame to help you promote? Or an iPad for students to take surveys? You’re in luck! USGD has created a resource rental program to serve students and student organizations in need of items for activities and events on campus. You can rent any of these items from USGD at any time so that your organization does not have to purchase them.

Items available include:

  • iPads
  • Google Square
  • Inflatable Bowling Set
  • Spinning “Prize” Wheel
  • Chalk A-Frames
  • Speaker & Mic System
  • Canopy Tents
  • Disk-Drop Game

This can help with tabling events and recruiting members. Contact Ernesto if you need any help attaining quotes or finding information!

If you are not printing an item with an ASU logo or trademark, you are able to purchase items from wherever you see fit so long as it is approved by USGD’s senate.
