Student Organizations

Student engagement in campus life is designed to encourage personal development. Student organizations and activities provide a variety of opportunities to build relationships, develop leadership skills, discover effective communication strategies, grow in relationship to Christ, exhibit personal responsibility, participate in service to the campus and community, and have fun.

We have three types of student organizations: Open, Departmental/National Affiliated, and Greek Life. Students can join Open organizations at any time. Departmental/National Affiliated organizations are typically honors societies or associated with a specific major. Greek Life has a formal membership and recruitment process.

If you do not find an organization that interests you, you can start a new organization! Email to learn more about the process. All you need is 10 friends who want to join, and we will help you with the rest!
