Registered Student Organizations
West Shore Community College has many Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) each semester to choose from; there is something for everyone, so get involved! RSOs cover a wide range of topics and interest areas.
The Student Services Office, along with the Student Senate, officially recognizes these organizations through an annual registration process. Once registered, RSOs can plan and sponsor activities on campus, apply for funding, and participate in events.
To create a new RSO, please fill out this form (you must be signed into my.westshore to view this form). For information about starting a new RSO or joining one, contact Matt Sanderson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
