Starting a Club
Thank you for your interest in starting a Registered Student Organization (RSO) at Lone Star College-CyFair! Starting a new student organization can be very time consuming, yet rewarding. RSOs are for students, and in that vein, should grow out of student needs and interests. Therefore, Emerging RSO Interest Forms will only be accepted from students. Along with the creation of these organizations comes many tasks that must be completed prior to creation and throughout the duration of the organization. The steps for forming an RSO are embedded in the Emerging RSO Interest Form, which can be accessed by clicking HERE.
Students frequently find that developing the RSO's constitution can be the most challenging part of starting an RSO. A constitution is the group's founding document. It lays out the purpose of the RSO, its structure and basic processes, officers and responsibilities, elections, etc. A constitution gives guidance to the organiztion and brings continuity from year to year. A sample constitution with instructions to guide you in developing your prospective RSO's constitution can be found by clicking HERE.
