If you are not part of a recognized club and wish to conduct an activity on campus which contributes to the educational and cultural environment of the College, you must obtain permission at least two weeks in advance from the Interim Dean of Student Engagement and Retention or his/her designee. Approved requests will be scheduled at a time and location which will not interrupt other activities on campus.
