Guidelines for Naming Your Organization
New student organizations applying for recognition who wish to use the name "Dartmouth" or "Dartmouth College" in their name/logo are required to indicate in the organization's name that it is a student organization. To accomplish this, we suggest using words and phrases such as:
- "student organization"
- "undergraduate organization"
- "graduate student"
- "graduate student organization"
- "student alliance"
- "student partnership"
- "student society" or
- "student association".
Please note the words "at Dartmouth" alone do not convey student status. If a recognized student organization wishes to use the words "at Dartmouth" in its name, or uses "Dartmouth" in an acronym, it must still include language indicating its status as a student organization.
All student organization names will be reviewed and approved by the COSO Board during the recognition process.
