Clubs are a great way to meet new people and pursue your passions! Clubs can be academic, social, representational, or cultural. SAMRU’s clubs meet throughout the year to plan social events, fundraisers, graduation celebrations, and more. By starting or joining a club, you can explore your interests while developing valuable friendships and leadership skills.
CLUB RATIFICATION will be done throughout the year. This year we will be moving to an online ratification and re-ratification form. You can find this form under the links and forms page. If you have any questions about this process please talk to the clubs coordinator.
The purpose of clubs is to offer students the opportunity to engage in co-curricular activities which facilitate the development of essential life skills such as interpersonal communication, conflict resolution and time management. Clubs provide a vital medium for students to network with other students, faculty, businesses and the community. Students may choose to simply participate within a club by supporting and promoting events, or to tackle a more challenging leadership role by becoming an executive member. Regardless of your level of involvement, clubs help you to feel more connected to the campus community.
How do I join a club?
Check out the Clubs Directory and see if any of the current clubs interest you. Most clubs will be available on Main Street for Clubs & Campus Expo in early September and January, or you can talk to the Clubs Coordinator who can help connect you to the clubs.
How do I start a club?
The process for establishing a new SAMRU Club on campus is smoothly structured to allow students the most effective and efficient means to register their club. Ratification involves two steps: submitting your ratification form and sending at least 2 club executives to clubs training.
Steps to Ratification:
1. Conceive of a club and recruit at least 3 executives and 7 members (for a total of 10)
2. Read the Club Procedure document available from the Clubs Coordinator (Z304) or at www.samru.ca under clubs links and forms
3. Submit the ratification form, along with all signatures and your constitution (you can upload these directly through the form)
4. Have at least 2 executives RSVP for clubs training (at www.samru.ca under clubs training)
5. Your ratification application will be reviewed and you will be notified when your club is officially ratified.
6. Don’t forget to apply for funding once your club is ratified (www.samru.ca, under clubs links and forms)
