Student organizations

With about 30 active student organizations each semester, there are many opportunities for students to get involved.

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 students involved in organizations built around academics, recreation, service and more. 

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.

To find an organization that fits you, browse the student organization directory or start your own organization.
