Getting Started with Web space for your student organization
To start, you must be a Penn State student organization that is
officially registered or affiliated by the Student Affairs office at
your campus. For information on how to register your organization with
your local Student Affairs office, visit your location's Student
Affairs Web site.
Confirm that your campus is using the Student Organizations Server
or another Web service. Currently, the following Penn State locations
are using this service:
Additional Penn State locations may use this Web service at a later date.
Orgnizations from other locations may already have Web space on the Student Organizations server (formerly known as the "Student Activity Server"). Those organizations may be able to retain their spaces if the Student Affairs offices at their respective locations decide to register for the Student Organizations Web Service. Not all locations will choose to do this.
Your organization should apply with the Student Affairs office at your location to get the space. Use the following list to find the form or instructions from your participating location.
After your request has been sent to your local, participating
Student Affairs office, it will be reviewed. Your organization must
meet specific eligibility requirements to qualify for Web space. It
may take a few days before the Web space is granted. An officer in
your organization, likely the president, will be sent a notice via
e-mail once the space has been created. This officer will be referred
to as the "Web-Team Coordinator". The e-mail will give instructions on
how the Web-Team Coordinator can assign the Webmasters (also known as
the "Web Team") who will have the ability to modify your organization's
Web site. While the Web-Team Coordinator may not necessarily have
access to modify the Web site him/herself, the Web-Team Coordinator may
also assign his/her account to be a Webmaster as well. Generally,
the president of each organization also serves as the Web-Team
Coordinator. When new officers are chosen, your organization must
submit a "change of officers" form to the designated Student
Affairs office for your campus location. After your organization's form
has been processed, the Web-Team Coordinator position is generally
assigned to the new president. Check with the Student Organizations Web
Service Administrative Contact at your location for details.
Once they have been notified that their accounts have been
created, the Webmasters can read the Tutorials on how to access the Web space for
