Registered Student Organizations

Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) play an important role in helping Ferris State University achieve the mission of innovative teaching and learning. RSOs provide unique learning experiences outside the classroom, and they create opportunities for students’ personal and professional development. Ferris State University recognizes the positive impact student organizations may have on recruitment and retention of students.

All student organizations must register with the Ferris State University Center for Leadership, Activities and Career Services (CLACS) in order to function on campus and have access to campus resources, including space reservations and posting privileges. Information provided through the registration process enables the University to maintain communication with student leaders and to provide several special services for student organizations.

Any Ferris State University student organization registered with the University is subject to the policies and procedures as outlined in the Code of Student Community Standards (Student Handbook) and in the Registered Student Organization Handbook.

The Center for Leadership, Activities and Career Services is committed to helping student organizations thrive at Ferris State University. Services include leadership training, office resources, organizational consulting, community service opportunities, and advice on activities planning and funding. Don’t hesitate to contact the office at 591-2685 or visit Helen Ferris Terrace Level for assistance with your student organization needs.
