    • Ability to apply to the Budgets & Clubs Board (BCB) for a budget
      allocation to address the costs of operating expenses.
    • Ability to request additional funding from campus entities that provide
      such funding to BCSG-recognized clubs.
    • Monthly account activity reports from the Accounting Office.
  • Logistical support
    • Orientations and trainings for club leaders provided by BCB and/or the
      Office of Campus Life.
    • A club profile in the Club Directory on this website, including your club’s
      description, contact information, the ability for prospective members to
      join your Google Group, and links to your social media pages.
    • A dedicated Google Group (email listserv) to communicate with current
      and prospective club members.
    • If requested from the Help Desk, a delegated email address to use for
      official club business.
    • The ability to reserve event, program, and meeting spaces via the Event Management System.

      from the Office of Campus Life.
