Annual Events Sponsored by Student Life
Welcome Week offers a variety of events throughout the first week of classes in the fall semester. Students, faculty and staff are invited to join in the celebration of the new school year. Student organizations are invited to participate in some way, by possibly hosting or cohosting an event.
Held each semester, this event provides an opportunity to recruit new members and market student organizations. All active student organizations will be contacted by Student Life to have a table at the fair. Organizations are encouraged to set up and staff a table displaying flyers and literature to describe the organization, its purpose, its past accomplishments and future plans, and its membership requirements.
ROAR Leadership Conference
Held each year, the ROAR Leadership Conference offers a unique opportunity to build individual and team leadership skills, as well as the opportunity to build networks with student leaders from Victoria College and UH system schools. The conference offers a keynote speaker and breakout sessions scheduled throughout the day. We highly encourage all student organization leaders to attend this conference.
Student Organization and Leadership Banquet
This annual awards banquet is held late in the spring semester and recognizes outstanding achievements and contributions of student organizations and student leaders. Interest groups become chartered student organizations and the incoming Student Government Association Executive Officers are also installed at the banquet. Invitations are emailed to organization presidents, advisors and Student Government Association Executive Officers. Nomination requests and criteria for the awards are shared via email from Student Life.
Mandatory Student Organization Training
In order for student organizations to be considered in good standing (allows organizations to hold meetings/events, reserve rooms, request SOFC funds, etc.), the President, Advisor or a designated officer must complete a mandatory Student Organization Training. Officers elected at the end of the spring semester must attend the training offered in the fall. Any new officers that fill a vacant position during the fall semester must attend the first training provided at the beginning of the spring semester.
