Investing in the Student

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. You can direct any questions to Tahir “upa” Ahsan at soccoordinator@stolaf.edu or come meet him in person at the Office of Student Activities.
