Clubs

Clubs are an essential part of the Student Government and student life in general. We have a very active life at RITK represented by the number of clubs currently active on campus despite the small number of students.

For Students

How to join a club: Every year in the first few weeks the SG will organize info sessions with clubs where students can sign up and learn more about the club. If you miss these info sessions you can also join the clubs through their online forms or by directly contacting the club leader’s so that they may guide you in joining and participating in the club.

For Club Leaders

Requirements to start a new club: Two page proposal stating: name of the club, at least 10 names of students interested in contributing to it, purpose of the club, why it would be a good addition to RITK life, resources necessary to run the club and the faculty advisor name and statement from them.
Clubs Budget Proposal: The budget proposals are not designed for approval or denial, they are designed for negotiations and for clubs to receive an adequate budget for the semester. Club leaders should identify specific activities with dates and a rough idea of the resources they need for those activities.

E-Sports Club

The ESports Club focuses on organizing everything related to gaming. The main goal of this club is to enhance the experience of RIT Kosovo students by connecting their digital life with their real life. Among many other events, there is one major tournament organized each semester.

This tournament is only organized for the most requested game from the club members. Until now, Counter-Strike Global Offensive has been requested the most so we organize at least one CS-GO tournament per year.

Other than this major event, we also organize ESports nights where students come to campus to relax and relieve themselves from the academic stress by playing different types of games such as video games or board games. We understand how serious academic stress can get, therefore, we believe that students should be provided with a way to relax and enjoy their time on campus.
