Student Activities

Hello and Welcome to Winter 2022! Student Activities is experiencing many changes, just like all of you. Our move to hybrid work during this ongoing pandemic, while challenging, provides new opportunities for access and connection. Check the updates below!

Student Clubs 

Registration for new clubs will begin Orientation week and continue in the Fall quarter. For introductory information on all things clubs and to view the schedule of upcoming Registration Workshops - visit our Start a Club webpage. To see which clubs are already formed, see our listing of campus clubs here.  

Events 

There is limited access across campus, and we are following all health and safety guidelines designated by Evergreen. For this reason, events held on campus will adhere to current COVID-19 safety guidelines and deliberate in implementation. Clubs and Student Governance groups who have Special Initiative budgets or Start Up budgets will work with their advisors to determine how to best host and support low-risk, events (virtual or in-person). Any virtual events approved will be communicated via newsletter and the campus calendar. 

 

Student Governance  

  • The Geoduck Student Union (GSU) will continue to meet virtually via zoom. Their schedule is available and updated.

  • The Clean Energy Committee (CEC) is not in service this year as the fee will be on pause this year. Again, students will not be charged the CEC fee this year. Funded projects from previous years will continue to receive support.
