Parent Organization: Special Interest


Planning an event in Fall of 2017? The SOGA Application will be open this summer! The funding period for the Fall Semester will be October 1 - February 28, 2017.  

The SOGA Board's primary purpose is for the responsible allocation of funds to student organizations serving students on the West Lafayette campus registered with the Student Activities & Organizations Office to support their activities, events, travel, and services. Such activities and events should enhance campus life, allow opportunities for leadership development, promote engagement with the community, and create a forum for the exchange of information and ideas. These funds have been made available annually by the Purdue administration and the Student Activites Fee; and therefore, this initiative should benefit the members of student organizations on the West Lafayette campus and support the mission and strategic plan of Purdue University, West Lafayette.
