Step 2) Pay $40 dues in cash or Venmo to @Ashleyy_clarkk17 by February 21st


*We accept members throughout the entire semester however if you pay after the date listed above there is a $5 late fee. This is because we use the money to go directly into paying for merchandise, food, event activities, and everything else that the club does so without it we can't budget for how much we can do that semester.

**If you have financial strains there are payment plans available and you may email wsssdsu.treasurer@gmail.com for more details

How To Be An Active

Get a total of 8 points!

Point System:

(+3) for attending a academic/professional event

(+2) for attending a general body meeting

(+1) for attending a social event

*Other random point opportunities are given throughout the semester. Example: If leadership asks members to send in a picture that you received a flu shot or if we ask you to repost something promoting an event

What does being an active mean anyway?

Used as tie breakers when there is limited space for special opportunities and positions.
