Mercer seeks to foster a lively and inclusive community that is also intellectual, social, and spiritual. From the many student organizations and activities to the fine athletic facilities, there is truly something for everyone.
Student Organizational Policies
All student organizations should abide by the Student Organizational Policies.
All student organization events must be approved by the Office of Campus Life. Check the University calendar first to avoid any scheduling conflicts as best as possible (keep in mind that it may take several days for approved events to appear on the calendar).

Travel Policy and Form
Travel Form (Must be submitted 5 business days to the Campus Life Office before any organization travels. Copy of signed form must be submitted to the Office of Student Affairs to receive SGA funds for travel)
Campus and Residence Life Posting Policies
Campus Posting Policy: All flyers, posters and banners must be approved by the Office of Campus Life BEFORE you may post in academic or non-residence life buildings on campus. Campus Life staff will approve, stamp and place up to seven flyers in the Connell Student Center. Organizations must place all other flyers on campus (except for residence halls) on their own following the policies of each academic building. One stamped flyer must be included when seeking approval from Residence Life for flyers in the residence halls. Organizations must take all flyers to Residence Life for this second approval process.
Programs Offered for Student Organizations
The Division of Student Affairs provides many programs for your student organization in the areas of health and responsibility, organizational effectiveness, major/career/graduate school preparation, diversity training, and more. See a list of these programs or contact Campus Life or Greek Life to find out more. Also refer to the list of Mercer Folks to Know for more information.
