Investing in the Student

Thanks for a great year. Funding requests are now closed for the 2016-2017 school year. For any immediate concerns or questions please contact Charlie Bahnson, SOC Coordinator at bahnson@stolaf.edu.
SOC is a branch of SGA that approves clubs, making them Official Student Organizations. Student Organizations can apply to SOC for funding for events, speakers, equipment, etc–basically if they want to do something spectacular. Student Organizations can also use the poster room to create publicity for their organizations. We help to put the resources of the college behind the orgs so they can go out and do what they love to do.
