Statement of Purpose

The SOURCE is a multi-purpose space where all students are welcome to collaborate, learn, and explore in an inclusive environment that cultivates community, advances leadership, and promotes wellness.

About the SOURCE

Students will find large dry erase board space, several computers and printers, monitors for projection for collaborative meetings, cell phone charging station, supplies and resources, and a new Mondopad featuring multi-touch high definition display for digital interactive whiteboard and a built-in Windows PC. The room is typically open and available during Norris University Center hours.

Located on the third floor of Norris, the SOURCE is the gateway to Campus Life, the home of three departments: Student Organizations & Activities, Leadership & Community Engagement, and Fraternity & Sorority Life.

Adding/Editing Your Group's Account

The treasurer of record for the student organization is responsible for the copy/print code for their group. If you would like to request a code, the current code is ever lost or needs to be changed, the treasurer should email Joe Lattal with this request. We can also provide an updated balance for treasurers to track. Student group accounts are billed via SOFO at the end of each academic quarter based on the machine counter's record.
