Student Organizations

Reed College student organizations represent a wide variety of interests, ideologies, spiritual practices, identities, and activities. 

Starting an organization

One of the great things about Reed is that it’s easy to get involved and find your niche. If you don’t see what you want in the student organization database, feel free to start your own group.

While student organizations at Reed have no formal recognition process, there are a few things you should do to get a group off the ground.

  1. Register your group on SIN. Use the link “student organization manager” and enter the requested information.
  2. Attend signators’ training. This usually happens the first week of each semester. Look for advertisements the first week of school that will provide the time, date, and location of the training. If you’ve missed the training, contact the student body treasurers at money@lists.reed.edu to find out what you need to do.
  3. Come talk to the staff in student activities (in the student center) to get resources and advice about how to create a successful organization.

Student organization resources

There are a number of ways that the student activities office supports student organizations:

Advising

Student activities staff are available to meet with you about any organization-related issues including recruitment, keeping members engaged, running meetings, making decisions and more.
Event planning

We can talk to you about events that are only a dream and help you figure out how to make them happen.  We will walk you through all the details including contacting performers, negotiating contracts, budgeting and finding funding, event logistics, and more.
Funding

Student activities has a small amount of funding to co-sponsor student events.  Contact 
student-activities@reed.edu
 for information about how to apply.

Student Spaces
There are a number of student organization spaces located in the Gray Campus Center, the basement of Old Dorm Block, and the student union. These are administered by the student senate and student activities. We can assist with keys, maintenance and more.

Please contact student activities with any suggestions or feedback on site content.
