Recognized Student Organizations

Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs) are made up of over 120 student led clubs and organizations with themes ranging from academics, athletics, culture, professional, performing arts, special interest, political, spiritual, social justice, wellness, and many others.  Getting involved with an RSO is one of the quickest ways to connect with other Seawolves, develop friendships, explore your passions, and gain leadership experience. All are open to currently enrolled Sonoma State students. 

You can find and explore a directory of all active Recognized Student Organizations at Sonoma State by clicking on “Organizations” from the homepage of GetInvolved@SSU.

If you don’t see an RSO that fits your specific interests or needs, starting a new club or organization is easy! Please review the following basic requirements for starting the recognition process below: 

  • Recruit at least 4 other SSU students (5 total including yourself) that are interested in joining your organization.

  • Once you have 5 total members, decide who would like to serve as the President and who would like to serve as the Treasurer. 

  • Recruit a faculty or staff member that is interested in serving as your Advisor.

  • Schedule a meeting with the appropriate Student Involvement Advisor to discuss the next steps of the Recognition Process

The relationships and experience you gain through your involvement in a Recognized Student Org will have immeasurable impact on your experience at SSU and beyond.
