Student Life

Get involved with one of the many student organizations on campus. If we don't have a particular club that fits your interest, contact the Office of Student Support & Development to learn how to start a new one!

Want to start your own club on campus?

The first step in starting a Student Club or Organization is filling out the Application for Recognition. The Application for Recognition requires that a student:

• Has a proposed name for the Club/Org

• Signature of advisors (faculty or employee) who have agreed to work with the Club/Org

• Description of the purpose of the club

• Signature of at least ten, currently registered Ivy Tech Bloomington students as prospective members of the above mentioned Club/Org

• A constitution and by-laws governing the Club/Org

To access the Application for Recognition, follow these steps:

  1. Login to Ivy Life (available through Quick Links in Campus Connect)
  2. Click on “Organizations” in the green bar at the top of the page
  3. Click on “Register New Organization” in the lime green box
  4. Select “Bloomington”
  5. Scroll down and click “Select”
