I would say go for it. If you wish to start up a Club and have permission from the school to, go right ahead. A long while back the University of Calgary had an airsoft club (UCAC) and thats basically how airsoft in Calgary got started. It has since disbanded due to members graduating but they planted the seed for the rest of us.
As long as you've got full permission and the drive to run and lead things I would heartily approve of your recruitment drive.
As for keeping Airsoft "Underground" I think everyone needs to get over that. There is no reason for us to be all hush hush anymore.
