For more information on Club Sports opportunities, please contact Lynne Andrews, Director of Recreational Sports.

Fraternities and Sororities

Being a member of a Greek-letter organization at KSC helps students to connect to campus, meet new people, be a part of campus traditions, and explore various leadership opportunities. Keene State College currently has 8 inter/nationally recognized Greek-letter organizations (3 sororities and 5 fraternities) active on campus, overseen by the Inter-Fraternity Council (governing body for fraternities) and the Panhellenic Council (governing body for sororities). In addition, in a continued effort to promote scholarship, outstanding members of the fraternity/sorority community are recognized for their academic achievement by being inducted into the Order of Omega Honor Society. The Fraternity/Sorority community at KSC holds the values of scholarship, service, brotherhood/sisterhood and leadership in high regard.

Honor Societies

Honor Societies at Keene State College provide talented students the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to academic excellence in a chosen discipline or field of study.

For more information about Honor Societies, please contact Kim Schmidl-Gagne, Program Manager for Diversity and Multiculturalism Initiatives.

Recognized Student Organization Constitutions

Recognized Student Organization constitutions must be reviewed and revised every three years (2017, 2020, 2023, 2026, 2029, etc.). The purpose of review and revision is to ensure content accurately reflects the intended mission, functions, and purpose of the organization. Additionally, it should include any changes to how the organization operates group activities, meetings, funding sources, and officer and advisor roles and responsibilities. All Keene State College recognized student organizations are required to maintain an up-to-date constitution both within the organization and with the Office of Student Involvement.

Components of an effective constitution

  • Official organization name (must not include Keene State, Keene State College, KSC, or any other similar phrasing that includes the College’s name)
  • Mission statement
  • Keene State College Nondiscrimination Statement
  • Organizational structure and descriptions of each (President, Vice President, Director, Executive Director, etc.)
  • Membership
  • Meetings and annual activities
  • Executive board election process *0Removal of officers
  • Amendments
  • Dissolution of organization
  • Keene State College Hazing Policy

Constitution Review Meetings

  • RSOs should hold a few constitutional review meetings that are open to all members of the organization and include the advisor(s).
  • Start with discussion about the mission and purpose of the organization.
  • Next, discuss activities and functions that allow the RSO to achieve the stated mission and purpose.
  • Describe the makeup of the group: who should join and what do they get out of their membership?
  • If there are any costs related to membership, these must be accurately described in terms of the exact dollar amount and the use of the dues.
  • Use third-person neutral language: “the President,” “they/them/their,” etc.
  • Maintain editable copies (.docx, .doc), as well as hard copy format. These should be shared with all members, officers, and advisors annually.

Please direct any questions on this process to Nadia Hasan, Constitution Committee Chair or Britany Gallagher, Coordinator of Student Activities and Organizations.
