A common misconception; the RLC is not the sole domaine of the athletic department. It is for use by all the students, not just student athletes. That is why regular students cannot use the Rankin Hall weight room. It "belongs" to the athletic department, not the student population.
As for the Kennedy Club, it was banned because it served alcoholic beverages. If you want a club on campus, all you need is a full-time staff member to serve as an adviser and 10 student members. Go to student activities and ask for assistence.
