How to Establish a New Organization

The first step in creating a student organization is finding at least 8 interested students who want to join. Then, find an advisor. A student organization advisor can be a full-time Lone Star College-Tomball faculty or staff member who agrees to advise your student organization. Make sure that your advisor has enough free time to help when needed. After you have secured 8 people and an advisor print and fill out the Student Organization Registration Packet and Sample Constitution. The sample constitution will help you create the organization's constitution. Once you have both completed turn them into Shannon Marino in the Office of Student Life (C-223). The advisor of the organization will be sent an e-mail confirming acceptance or rejection of the application.

Once your organization is approved asa Registered Student Organization (RSO) the president of the organization and advisor must contact the Office of Student Life in roomC223 to schedule a RSO/Advisor training session, you will also receive a RSO handbook that contains valuable information that will help you run your organization.
