Advertise Your Organization in the Get Involved Booklet

Looking for a cool way to advertise your student org? Each semester, the Student Activities Center (SAC) produces a full-color booklet, Get Involved, that highlights student involvement opportunities including joining or starting student orgs, an overview of arts and entertainment opportunities, as well as leadership and service programs and the benefits of being involved. Copies of the booklet will be handed out at Spring ClubFest and mailed to residence halls. As an advertiser, you will reach thousands of students who are seeking ways to get involved, meet new people, and make their own ISU experience a meaningful one.

And remember to check out all the useful features available to your club in the Student Org Database

  • Display all your club's photos in the photo gallery application.

  • Use the calendar feature to list events and meetings for your org's members and anyone who visits your webpage. Students can also subscribe to your calendar so that your events show up on their personal calendar within the student org database, which can be found under "MyStuorg," and then "Calendar."

  • Once you create your event on the calendar, you can have event attendees check in with a prox card or card swipe reader that collects participant names in a database within your website. You can then pull an attendance report at any time.

  • Manage your subscribers! Students, faculty, staff and anyone with an account can subscribe to your org to get announcements in addition to the info on your calendar. Be sure to visit the "Manage Subscribers" page to see who's subscribing to your org and invite others. Once you have a list, you can create and send announcements to those subscribers within the site.
