What We Do

Student Activities promotes a sense of community and loyalty to the University, while serving to enhance the social, intellectual and developmental growth of students as individuals or as members of organizations. By engaging members of the University community in collaborative efforts, Student Activities nurtures citizenship, leadership, and community, while striving to assist in the holistic development of students.

Get Connected

One of the goals of Student Activities is to help students make connections on campus and maximize their college experience through student organizations. We have about 400 orgs from which to choose, so there’s something for everyone. And if there’s not, you can create one! Becoming a member of a student organization helps you meet new people, develop leadership skills, and promote your interests while in college.
