A club is a student organization formed by individuals with a common interest in a particular activity or cause. Each club is formed, organized and governed by students under the guidelines established by the Eckerd College Organization of Students (ECOS). Clubs may be competitive, instructional or recreational with a variety of foci and programming to match their interests. However, all Clubs are student initiated and managed, and the administration of the club requires the leadership and involvement of its members and the ability of club officers to execute the basic procedures directed by pertinent policies. Through this process, club members and officers gain valuable learning experiences through their involvement in organization, administration, scheduling, fund raising and public relations.
Questions and concerns should be discussed directly with the ECOS Club and Organization Intern, at 727.864.8973. It is also important for club leaders to maintain contact with the Department of Campus Activities. Essential paperwork, upcoming deadlines, meeting notices, etc. are placed in club mailboxes located near the Campus Activities Office in Brown Hall, giving club members and officers a perfect opportunity to touch base.
