What is Shreve Club?
Shreve Club is the student organization of Shreve Hall, responsible for creating events and activities for the benefit of our residents. Our goal is to make Shreve the best possible place for you to live, and we welcome all residents to help us continue our pursuit of excellence.
Each week, our General Assembly meets to propose and vote on new ideas that benefit the residents of Shreve Hall. Our annual budget of about $32,000 gives us a lot of flexibility to achieve this through hall and campus events (some of which are listed at right), through the purchase of equipment for hall use (like speakers, projectors, and sports equipment), and by supporting and participating in initiatives throughout the Purdue community (such as Homecoming and Grand Prix). In other words, Shreve Club can help make your great ideas a reality.
Every Shreve resident is automatically a member and can attend these weekly meetings to help decide what we do. Those who wish to officially represent their floor communities can become Senators, while those who wish to represent all of Shreve can join the Executive Board.
In short, Shreve Club gives you the opportunity to become a leader within your community!

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the weekly meetings like?
The weekly meetings last about an hour. Floors convene at each table and the executive board makes general announcements. Then, any member can propose an idea for an activity in the hall, on campus, or at another city/park/attraction. He/she will typically state the location, date, and cost, as well as request any necessary help. Members may also propose ideas for new equipment purchases (such as a new projector). The club then votes on each idea and, if passed, allocates funds for the event or purchase. Members may also participate in community-building activities or learn about initiatives taking place throughout Purdue.
Who leads Shreve Club?
Shreve Club is led by a 12-member executive board that includes 4 cabinet members. The board oversees the club's operations, budget, and equipment. In addition to the general meetings, board members attend an extra weekly meeting to discuss the state of the club and work toward its yearly goals.
Who are the senators?
Senators are club members chosen each year by RAs to represent their floor. There are two senators from each floor community who are required to attend each weekly meeting in order to vote, plan, and organize with the club. Senators are distinguished from other members as a result of their official recognition within Shreve and from Purdue staff, as well as their extra involvement in Shreve Club activities. Senators receive numerous benefits for their work, such as the opportunity to participate in leadership retreats.
How do I join Shreve Club?
By living in Shreve Hall! All hall residents are already members who may propose ideas and vote at weekly meetings. If you are interested in attending our weekly meetings, simply come and join a table.
Those who are interested in becoming senators should attend our callout during the first week of school and speak with their RA.
