Mandatory Fall Roll Call (formerly Re-Registration)

Monday, September 19th - Sunday, October 2nd

Every year the Student Activities Office requires all student organizations to update their portal on BearSync. In the past this process was referred to as Re-Registration. Going forward it will be known as Mandatory Fall Roll Call to distinguish it from UCS Categorization/Re-Categorization.

Visual Identity Policy

University Communications has released a new policy regarding use of the Brown's Coat of Arms (crest/logo).

"To maintain the strong historic and symbolic elements it represents, the Coat of Arms should never be deconstructed or altered in any way ... Acceptable uses include full-color (gold, red, gray and white), two-color (red and white) and one-color variations." (p.6)

Students are expected to follow this policy with regard to student organization logos and promotional images, as well as all t-shirts and paraphenalia.

As part of the Division of Campus Life and Student Services, the Student Activities Office leads campus efforts to support 400+ student groups. We co-coordinate undergraduate Orientation with the Dean of the College and support the Brown Outdoor Leadership Training (BOLT), Brown Student Agencies, and Liber Brunensis (Brown's Yearbook).

In addition, the office provides oversight and coordination for two facilities that serve the Brown community—the Stephen Robert '62 Campus Center and T.F. Green Hall for Student Performing Arts.

BearSync is our student group portal. It includes a roster of our 400+ recognized student groups on campus and their profiles. To find out more click here.
