Student Organizations

Overview

With about 30 active student organizations each semester, Student Life provides a range of opportunities for students to get involved. Student organizations have a significant impact in providing effective learning environments for students, preparing them to live in a multicultural society and work in a global community.

In addition to building lasting friendships, student organizations provide many benefits including serving as a medium for academic discourse, personal growth, leadership development, intercultural understanding and community service. Moreover, research suggests that involved students tend to perform better academically and are more likely to graduate when compared with their non-involved peers.

Defined, a student organization is an association of students created for any educational purpose that supports the vision and goals of the university. There are hundreds of student involved in organizations, ranging from Student Government, to ping pong club, to academic honoraries, and more.

To find an organization that fits you, visit the current student o​rganization directory or learn how to start your own organization with the student organization handbook.
