Student Orgs Bulletin

A weekly rundown of announcements and reminders.

March 5-11, 2017

I publish these bulletins each week to keep all student org leaders and advisors updated on STARS stuff, frequently asked questions, and other important info to help you run a successful student org. If there's a topic you think I should cover, let me know!

Need to Know

Spring Break Travel

As spring break approaches, I'd like to remind everyone of the Student Organization Travel Policy. All organizations traveling for mission-related purposes (conferences, retreats, community service, etc.) MUST report their spring break travel ASAP!

Please see our Student Organization Travel Form on our website. Everyone traveling must complete a travel waiver. We prefer to receive this two weeks prior to your travel, but considering spring break is next week, we will accept late forms.

Please remember the travel policy for all future org-related travel!

Good to Know

SWOT Scheduling

Org seeking 4 STAR rewards should be making plans to complete a SWOT Meeting with me by the April 1 deadline. Please use my MeetMe page to find a time that works for us between 10 AM-4 PM. Prior to our meeting, please use the this worksheet to do so some brainstorming about your organization’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats!

You’re welcome to bring any officers or newly elected officers to this meeting as a way to prepare your organization for future success. If it’s more than 4 people, just let me know in advance.

As you can imagine, my schedule fills up quickly with SWOT meetings, new org presentations, and final STARS business before the deadlines. On top of that, I am attending a conference the week of March 19th. Olivia will be helping me accommodate your SWOT requests up until April 1, but know that we will not extend the deadline for late-comers especially considering orgs seeking 4 STAR rewards are given the entire year to schedule their SWOT meetings.

Nice to Know

March Madness

Temple University must adhere to certain guidelines regarding gambling laws and NCAA compliance. If your organization is thinking of putting together a March Madness bracket pool for profit/fundraising please let me know BEFORE you proceed so I can share the guidelines with you.
