Student organizations are created to enrich the academic and co-curricular interests of students. Students hold all leadership positions and are offered guidance by a faculty or staff advisor. Organizations can center on academics, social and global concerns, diversity and cultural issues, or community service and enable students to enrich their gifts and talents. The Office of Student Involvement and Orientation Programs encourages students to make suggestions and develop new organizations that meet their needs and interests.
The following is a list of clubs/student organizations. If you don't see a club for you, see the Office of Student Involvement and Orientation Programs for information on how to start a new one.
