Student Organizations

Studying is important but an equally important part of college life takes place outside the classroom. Outside-the-classroom learning provides opportunities for leadership, organizational skill development, and more.

Social and cultural activities provide an opportunity for you to meet new friends, become acquainted with new styles of music, art, literature. Some activities are fun-oriented. Others offer exercise and relaxation. Find out how you can get involved by contacting club advisors and, on campus, watch for announcements and signs about events.
