GrizzOrgs is a network for student organizations, with features like a calendar, messaging, forms, and the ability to design your organizations very own website. With GrizzOrgs, organizations will have a new venue to advertise their events and be able to keep in contact with their members easier, faster, and more hassle-free than ever.
The first time you log in you will have to make a profile. This can be edited at any time and not all fields are required. If you do not want your address to be visible, make sure to not put it on there.
All student organizations are now required to register on GrizzOrgs. For more information regarding how to start a new student organization or how to use GrizzOrgs, please contact the Center for Student Activities.
SAFB FORMS NOW ON GRIZZORGS:
Beginning Fall 2012, all student organizations will be applying for funding from SAFB on GrizzOrgs. Students Organization presidents and treasurers must have attended training prior to applying for funding. The online forms can be found by logging onto GrizzOrgs, then choose your organization, click on the treasury button on the left, and finally click budgets and fill out a "New Budget" request. Please contact the CSA if you have any questions on how to navigate through GrizzOrgs by calling them at: (248) 370-2400, or by visiting their office at 49 Oakland Center.
The green bags that Chartwells uses to put paper products in for student groups are are not being returned. Chartwells has thus notified SAFB that they have started charging $10 everytime a group doesn't return a bag (as it costs Chartwells $10 to replace each one). If you could please return your bag to Chartwells this will help Chartwells not lose many bags and help your organization not go into deficit.
Also, the updated student organization catering menus, designed by OUSC's Visual Communications Director Alejandro Herrera, are officially complete and can be viewed by clicking here: Student Organization Guide (Pickup before 5:00 PM) and Student Organization Guide (Pickup after 5:00 PM) (they may take a moment to load).
SAFB MISSION STATEMENT:
The mission of the Student Activities Funding Board is to impartially assist the registered Student Organizations of Oakland University in implementing and developing programs, events, and other activities to benefit the Oakland University student body by fairly and equitably appropriating its financial resources as well as professionally consulting with the aforementioned organizations.
The Board understands that it can be confusing when applying for funding. We try to always help assist you as best as possible, where you can always visit the SAFB chair during his office hours, email us, or visit our FAQ and Helpful Information pages for more information. We've done our best this past summer to dramatically change the SAFB process.
The three main goals the Board has tried to accomplish is to make the SAFB process easier, more accessible, and more straightforward then ever before. We are hopeful that the 2012-2013 school year will bring the best year yet for student organizations and their members and we are looking forward to the Fall semester.
There are new online SAFB forms that will be implemented after the Student Organization Training on GrizzOrgs using a new "Budget Management Software." This will hopefully expedite the SAFB process tremendously! The Student Organization Training is taking place on September 8th, 2012. You can find more information and register for the training here.
All funding requests submitted to SAFB should be submitted online no later than 5:00 pm on Monday to be reviewed at the following Tuesday Board meeting. The Board reviews submissions every Tuesday, where student organizations are then notified via email regarding the Board's decisions by the following weekend. Emailed decisions are sent to the president and treasurer via their Oakland emails. For information on what to do following SAFB approvals (or denials), please click here.
