Student Groups and Societies

Student groups and societies are an integral part of any university experience, and they are considered especially important at the University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union.

By our definitions, Campus Clubs are usually small groups based on interests, while College Societies are specific to each department, and are representative organizations for the students to express and advocate on issues specific to their department. The distinction between these two is something you might want to remember if you are planning on starting your own group since we will ask you when you ratify. Ratification is the official endorsement of the USSU and needs to be renewed every year.

Mailbox, Website, and Emails

The USSU recognizes the importance of the communication links between a Campus Group and its membership. To facilitate that interaction, Campus Groups are provided with the means to go on-line through Information and Technology Services (ITS). If a group is ratified by the USSU they can have an email account and space on the homepage server. This account must be renewed yearly.

The USSU highly recommends creating a consistent email address for the Campus Group. This allows consistency between years and only requires that you update the contact info and renew it yearly.

To create an email account and website, email the ICT Service Desk at servicedesk@usask.ca

For receiving letter mail, you have a choice between finding your own address and using the USSU’s provided mailboxes. The USSU’s mailboxes are located in the USSU reception, and mail can be picked up at any time during office hours.

What address do we use for these mailboxes?
