Faculty-Student Association (FSA)
The Faculty-Student Association (FSA) is an incorporated body of administrators, faculty, and students whose purpose is to promote and cultivate educational and cultural relations among the students and faculty of this College. The FSA oversees the expenditure of the Student Activity Fee.
There are many benefits gained from joining a student club or organization, including meeting new friends. Club involvement also offers an opportunity for students to learn skills such as time management and group dynamics. These experiences combined with academic learning are the ingredients of a well-rounded education. Students are encouraged to join one of the various campus clubs or organizations because the experience gained can last a lifetime. Please take the time to review the list of updated campus clubs by stopping by the Student Activities Office on your campus.
If you wish to establish a new club on campus and know of interested students, stop by the Student Government Office (SGO) or see the director of student activities in the Student Development Center. Students at the Fulton Campus can contact the student activities coordinator, or the SGO Fulton Campus advisor.
All clubs are funded by the Student Activity Fee, distributed by the Student Government Organization.
Phi Theta Kappa
Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society of the two-year college, has been recognizing and encouraging excellence among two-year colleges since it was founded in 1918. Today, the society has grown to become the largest honor society in higher education with more than 2 million members and 1,200 chapters located in 50 states. The recognition and scholarship opportunities that Phi Theta Kappa brings to an institution, its faculty advisors, and most importantly to its student member are unparalleled by any other student organization. Phi Theta Kappa is an invite-only club whose membership is open to students that achieve a high scholastic average and who possess leadership qualities. PTK selects its members after the first semester grades have been mailed. This great opportunity is available to students on both campuses.
Student Government Organization
The Student Government Organization (SGO) is an “official” voice for students’ concerns and suggestions, providing leadership and direction for individual students or clubs. SGO executive officers include a president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, and student trustee. All executive positions are elected posts. SGO also has student board members and the remaining student body is made up of student senators (comprised mostly of representatives of student clubs). SGO is responsible for distributing the budgets for student clubs. For more information, see the SGO advisor for either campus.
Theatre Productions (Harlequin)
A mainstage/studio theatre structure encourages activity in all aspects of theatrical activity, including acting, directing, production, and backstage work on the Auburn Campus. Participation is based on expressed interest and plays are selected to fit the interest and abilities of the individuals within the group. No experience is necessary to participate. If you are interested in any facet of theatre productions, you are encouraged to join this organization.
