ASA accepting applications to new student groups again

Board no longer understaffed

The moratorium imposed on new student groups by the Association of Student Activities has ended, meaning students can once again register new clubs. After a semester of not recognizing new groups due to understaffing and an outdated application system, the ASA has resumed the recognition process as originally planned.

According to ASA President Nichole Clarke ’18, the ASA Board is not understaffed anymore. It is also making final preparations for “the stage-one roll-out of the new database,” wrote Clarke in an email. As The Tech reported in October, the new online application and database is supposed to ease the burden for ASA board members reviewing applications, and streamline the process for students starting clubs.
