MANDATORY Student Organization Officer Training (SOOT)
Re-recognition will be done at this year’s Student Organization Officer Training (SOOT) on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 6-8pm in the Sky View Room of MacAlister Hall inside the Creese Student Center (6th Floor). All organization’s President, Vice President, and Treasurer (or equivalent positions) MUST ATTEND. Only officers who attend training are eligible to spend or receive reimbursement.
The goal of SOOT is to educate you on important University policies and procedures related to leading a graduate student organization. These policies are updated each year so it’s important to stay abreast. Additionally, the information will help you be successful in planning events and managing finances.
If you cannot attend SOOT on 10/1, you MUST set up a private meeting to do SOOT before you are eligible to spend any money. Please contact:
Student Engagement Coordinator, Student Affairs, Center City
