How to navigate the website:

Club Creation & Navigation (Ideal-Logic)

You can find a list of all of the clubs and organizations at OSU on our Find Clubs section. On this webpage, you can filter clubs by categories such as cultural clubs or sports clubs. For each club, you may request information on what the club does or you can join the club directly if the club is open to anyone joining. If you wish to find more information about clubs, some clubs have websites which can be found at the Club Websites. (Please note that some clubs linked have not edited their page and they will be blank).

Before applying to create a new club, it is a good idea to make sure there are no clubs that are similar to the one that you are thinking of making. If there are no clubs that are similar, then go to the Create a New Club under Manage Club to look at the basic requirements:

Then you may start working on a new club application on Ideal-Logic. Once you have filled out the application, please try to write the constitution for your club and schedule an appointment with a peer educator to review your application and constitution by emailing: [email protected]

An authorized signer is an officer who has been granted the authority to purchase goods and services on behalf of the RSO and who has access to financial information associated with the RSO’s index. One of the RSO’s primary contacts can submit an Authorized Signer form through the club’s dashboard in the RSO Database (Ideal‐Logic), to add, update and removed authorized signer for the group.

An index is a financial account for your club or organization that keeps records of your current funds as well as previous charges and transactions. The funds in your index can be used to make purchases for your organization's activities. If your organization does not have an index, you can fill out the Index Request Form located on your organization's dashboard in Ideal-Logic. Please note that you index may take up to 6-10 weeks to be created once the form is initially submitted.

More information can be found here.

Activity Planning

Activity plans are used to keep a record of an organization's activities and ensure that they uphold university guidelines. All events hosted by the organization need to be reported on Ideal-Logic (including open, closed, and non-funded events). 

A special event is a one time occuring event that is not the same time or day as your organization's meetings. 

Organization development is anything that is directly related to the development of your club

  • Club meetings
  • Club merch
  • Club equipment
  • etc.

If you are using our credit cards, we do have certain time windows where you can check out the card or use the card for an online purchase that is shown when you fill out the Payment Request Form.
