Introduction

Dear Student Leader:

Congratulations on being selected as a leader in your organization. In the course of planning for and running your organization, you will need information on registering as a student organization, funding, and reservation of facilities, publicizing events, and many other issues. This reference manual has been designed to make your job as an organization leader easier. The goal of the Office of Student Programs and Orientation is to resource the students of Eastern Mennonite University. If you need assistance, contact me at ext. 4133.

Thanks for your involvement. I hope your year is one of much personal growth and development.

Best,
Director of Student Programs and Orientation
