Students can choose to join student organizations in the following categories: Academic, Faith-based, Greek Life, Honor Societies, Military, Multicultural, Performance, Service, Special Interest, Sport Clubs & Student Governance.
*Organization categories may vary from the different campuses.
The first step to joining an organization is inquiring information about that particular group through OrgSync. Once you have gained information about the organization’s meeting times and location, attend one meeting. Be mindful that some groups have a selection process. That information should be indicated on their OrgSync profile.
Depending on your academic load and/or work schedule, we recommend that students be involved with at least one or two student groups. If you are able to join more, that’s awesome. However, try not to over commit yourself.
- You can speak with representatives of student groups at the Student Involvement Fair, which is generally held during the first few weeks of fall semester.
- Deciding what groups to be involved in are based on your personal preferences, values or interests. You can start by asking yourself what do you enjoy or what do you want to learn more about?
