Student Organization Awards

Student Organization Award nominations are now open. Each year, Student Affairs recognizes the outstanding contributions of student organizations to the Marquette community. We invite students, staff, and faculty to help us celebrate a wonderful year by nominating outstanding programs, officers, advisers, and organizations of the 2022-2023 academic year. Nominations close on February 26 at 11:59pm. See more information on the awards online.

Winter Welcome Carnival

Stop at the Welcome Back Carnival on Saturday, January 21st at 7 pm in the AMU Ballrooms. See how long you can last on the Mechanical Bull. Enjoy many other games as well as free Ian's Pizza!

Organization Renewal

Organization renewal will begin in March, and you’ll be prompted by Presence (our student org platform) in an email to re-register your organization for the 2023-24 academic year. Get your org rosters up to date so that the renewal notice goes to the current officers. Information about how to update your roster can be found here.

MUSG Student Org Funding

Spring funding applications are now open. Applications should be submitted at least 14 days prior to the event/travel. Applications will close on April 22, 2023 (which is two weeks out from the last day an event could occur for spring semester).

Please note the process is as follows:

  1. Apply for funding (14 days prior to event).
  2. Committee reviews applications.
  3. Organization is notified via email if funding was approved and in what amount.
  4. Hold event/purchase items.
  5. SAVE ALL RECEIPTS!! (Especially gas receipts if you were approved fuel/mileage funding.)
  6. Submit your reimbursement with proof of payment within 30 days of event/purchase.
