Student Organizations

The Office of Student Life oversees student clubs, organizations, and interest groups. We are your one-stop shop for learning how to get involved on campus! We offer workshops and training and house all your guidelines to help with any questions. 

We currently have three categories of organizations to identify better the needs and resources of each of our organizations.
