Clubs and Organizations
All students are urged to participate in student clubs and organizations. It is a great way to spend your time in between classes, have fun, meet new friends, and add skills and experiences that will be transferable to your resume. Remember, you can join a club any time of the year and it doesn't matter how long you have been an Ivy Tech Community College student. For a list of clubs and organizations with contact information, click here.
Do you want to form a club that we don't have? There are few restrictions involved in forming new student clubs. A new organization may be formed after obtaining a faculty or staff advisor, creating a constitution, filling out all paperwork required by the Student Life Office, and gaining approval by a vote by the Student Government Association. An organization must be officially recognized by the Student Government and the College prior to requesting and utilizing College facilities for activity purposes. The College will establish priority for use of its facilities.
Further information about forming clubs/organizations is available from the Student Life Office - Ivy Hall Room 1323, (765) 269-5618.
Student Government Association
The Student Government Association (SGA) is the official voice of the student body in matters relating to the college's administration. SGA is a vital link in the college's endeavors to ensure a positive learning environment for our student body. Each year, the SGA plans a wide variety of programs and activities designed to enhance campus life as well as support college sponsored programs. Participation in SGA also provides many opportunities for leadership.
