A Minot State University Club Sport is a registered student organization recognized by the Minot State Club Sports Committee and formed by individuals with a common interest and desire to participate in a sport or recreational activity that involves physical and/or mental exertion. Sport Clubs should be competitive, recreational, instructional in nature, a member of a regional or national governing body or association or may have any combination of these characteristics. Sport Clubs are administratively supported by the Minot State University Wellness Center, however, there is an emphasis on student leadership as the clubs are student organized, student engaged, and student operated.

Starting a New Student Organization at Minot State University

Student organizations play an important role in student development on the campus of Minot State University. Forming an organization can be a challenging, but ve­­ry rewarding process. To ensure success, the Office of Student Activities has designed a process that will help your group form a solid foundation so that your organization can flourish and provide valuable experiences to your fellow students. Follow these steps to get started!

  1. First, a full-time Minot State University student must complete a ‘New Student Organization’ application form through the Office of Student Activities that includes a roster of ten full-time MSU students who support the mission of the proposed organization.
  2. The forming group must identify at least one Minot State University faculty or staff member to serve as the organization’s official advisor.
  3. The next step is to draft an official constitution and submit a digital copy to the Office of Student Activities. The document will be reviewed by the Student Government Association for approval.
  4. Once officially approved by the Student Government Association, the new club can begin to request meeting spaces, club funding, a campus bank account and a club email address.

Minot State University Mascot Mark

The Minot State Mascot Mark brings an energetic and customizable option to the branding of the University. The Mascot Mark was formed for student groups to allow a creative, yet branded avenue for the student population. Usage of the Mascot Mark is prohibited for all other entities unless given special approval from the Athletic Department Marketing Office.

Student groups can submit the Mascot Mark Approval Form to request usage of the Mascot Mark.

Clubs are not responsible for design work. Once approved, the request will be sent to the Design and Print Services Office for professional customization.

Examples of customization include: added accessories, shirt design, and/or wording.

The Mascot Mark is not a substitute for the primary academic or athletic logos. Approval is based on appropriateness of the requested customization and status of the club or organization.
