Student Activities Office

Student activities are conducted to promote educational, cultural, social, and recreational programs. These programs are planned, coordinated, and conducted by students to supplement classroom learning experiences.

There are a wide variety of clubs and organizations that relate to special interests (hearing impaired, single parents), as well as instructional areas (Delta Epsilon Chi, drama, nursing, Skills USA, culinary arts). Membership in these student clubs and organizations is open to all students.

Starting a Student Organization

When there is an interest among students to form a new student organization:

  1. List all students interested in being a member.
  2. Discuss the club with Student Activities.
  3. Develop a club charter, guidelines, and constitution. The name, purpose, and goals of the organizations should be included within these documents (samples are available from the Student Activities Office).
  4. Develop a schedule and plan for meetings and programs.
  5. Find a faculty advisor.
  6. Upon approval, the club is sanctioned on campus.

Bulletin Boards/Campus Posting Policy

All Signs/Posters

Signs and/or posters that provide information on an event/activity or other information that is of interest to students, faculty, or staff must be removed after the activity, the event, or the expiration of 30 days, whichever comes first.

No posting regarding housing is allowed. All housing information must go through Ashley Smith in the Student Activities Office, Building 6, Room 0125, (509) 533‐8606, who will post it on a website.

  • The Student Activities staff must approve, stamp, and provide an expiration date for all signs/posters before posting; this does not apply to division signs/posters posted on their own bulletin boards. The stamp indicates review of the party requesting permission to post notices and does not indicate an endorsement of content.
  • The name and contact information of the responsible person/club must be submitted to the Student Activities staff.
  • Campus-sponsored clubs, organizations, and groups can have up to 30 signs/posters approved per event. Off‐campus organizations are limited to 10 signs/posters per event and must follow the Campus Posting Policy.
  • Signs/posters that contain illegal content or that violate SCC policies are not permitted.

Sign/Poster Display

  • Signs/posters smaller than 11" x 17" may only be placed on bulletin boards. No signs/posters may be placed on glass windows, light posts, or doors, nor may they be nailed or stapled to trees or plants.
  • Thumbtacks, staples, or masking tape may be used on designated bulletin boards.
  • Signs/posters larger than 11" x 17" require special permission from the Student Activities Office where both parties will agree where the sign can be placed.
  • Signs/posters displayed on sandwich or A‐frame boards may only be displayed for a maximum of four days.

Alternate Posting Options

  • Signs/posters placed on tables in the Lair, the Bigfoot Café, and the Coffeehouse require special permission. Please contact the Student Activities Office for further instructions.
  • Advertising on the two Lair lobby monitor screens will be limited to campus-sponsored events. Please contact Kimberlee Chin in the Student Activities Office at (509) 533-8606 or email KChin@scc.spokane.edu for further coordination.
  • Advertising on the reader board on the outside south wall of the Lair and the display screen in the Bigfoot Café is limited to campus-sponsored events. Please contact the Student Activities Office at (509) 533-8657 or email StudentLife@scc.spokane.edu for further coordination.

Approved Areas for Posting

Sign Removal

  • Persons or groups who post signs/posters are required to remove them by the day following the event or by the expiration date. Persons or groups who do not remove their signs/posters within the prescribed time limit risk restriction or loss of posting privileges.
  • SCC staff reserves the right to remove signage without notice if it is outdated, does not adhere to the posting policy, or is contrary to community standards.

If you have any questions or need special permission for a posting, please contact the Student Activities Office in the Lair, Room 125 or call (509) 533‐8657.
