RSO Badgers Step Up! Session

NOTE: One student can serve as the representative of multiple organizations, but that student is responsible for sharing the information from the session with each organization's officer/leader team.  The student representative at the time of signing into the presentation must list ALL student organizations they are representing at that time.  Additional organizations cannot be added after the session is completed.

Greek Women's Sign-Up Link:

NOTE: While there are similiaries between the Badger Step Up! program for RSOs and the New Member Greek sessions, it is the expectation that a sorority or fraternity still send a member to one of the general RSO sessions.  Only by attending a designated RSO session will the Badgers Step Up! requirement be fulfilled for registering a student organization.
