Clubs and Organizations

Do you have a party coming up? Has a meeting been scheduled and needs to be posted? Has enrollment been declining and you want to recruit new members? This section will help you write effective and attention getting notices to your fellow students.


Guidelines for writing organization and club notices:

  • Keep the information as brief as possible. Include the name of your organization, date, time, place, type of gathering, and if any refreshments or food will be served.
  • If you are advertising an event for which tickets will be sold, include the ticket price and sales dates.
  • If the event is for the general public, indicate that all people are welcome, not just members. Let them know that you look forward to seeing them at the gathering.
  • If the event is for club members only, then messages should be sent personally by email or by mail. However, since some students don't read their email, or they just ignore messages they think may be junk mail, it's probably better to send a message through regular mail.
  • If the event is for a club with a very large membership, meeting notices may be posted in a public place.
  • When creating flyers, include graphics and bright colors to catch students' attention. It is easy for people to ignore flyers because they see so many of them during the day. Try to make yours stand out.
