Clubs are a great way to meet new people and pursue your passions! Clubs can be academic, social, representational, or cultural.
SAMRU’s clubs meet throughout the year to plan social events, fundraisers, graduation celebrations, and more. By starting or joining a club, you can explore your interests while developing valuable friendships and leadership skills.

An important notice for students joining Clubs:

SAMRU provides a complimentary internal banking account for every club. Club Account reimbursements are authorized by Club Account Signatories, and requests are processed by SAMRU. Club Account Signatories are responsible for monitoring account funds and are held accountable by the collective club membership.

Clubs may be approved for the use of external banking accounts or 3rd party organizations to manage their funds. Clubs assume all responsibility and management of external accounts. SAMRU-provided funding must be held within a club’s internal account. Unused funds are held for a maximum of 2 years of inactivity, after which they are reabsorbed back into the main Club Funding. 

Before contributing to membership fees or funds Club members should be aware of how the Club manages its finances and how expenditure decisions are made.  If you have any questions or concerns, ask to speak directly to a Club Signing Authority.
