Welcome to the Student Organization Resource Center! (SORC)

What is SORC?

StudentWorkers.jpg The Student Organization Resource Center (SORC-pronounced ‘source’), is the resource center where all organizations come if they have questions about putting on an Activity/Event and filling out activity forms; seek advice or direction; receive mail for the organization; or if they have questions about effective meeting planning, organizational development, situational leadership, recruitment and retention of members, reserve a room, or just get some ideas on how to best run their club! SORC is located in the Student Union, SU 101.
