Start an Organization
Starting a student organization can be a rewarding experience. A group of 5+ Loyola University Chicago students may apply for organization registration through Student Activities & Greek Affairs (SAGA). As part of our commitment to equity and inclusion, RSOs must be accessible to all communities at Loyola University Chicago. The University reserves the right to limit the number of organizations with duplicate purposes. By registering your student organization with SAGA, your organization may take advantage of campus resources to promote your organization, recruit members, hold meetings, and support other activities. Review of applications happens once a semester (mid-September and mid-February).
To be eligible for consideration, new organization applications must be submitted via LUCommunity by that semester's posted deadline.
As the review cycle nears, your organization will be assigned a time to meet with the review panel. This hearing will give the review panel an opportunity to ask questions about the proposed organization, and for the applicants to ask questions of the panel.
If the application is approved, organization representatives will be required to attend a new student organization orientation. Your approval as an organization is contingent upon mandatory attendance at new student organization orientation.
