Student Activities and Organizations

You’ll get an education in the art of balancing work and play

Become a campus leader or join more than 140 recognized student clubs and organizations. Attend concerts and engage with guest speakers, and see movies and plays. Start an intramural team, join a Greek community, go out on Friday and Saturday nights. Try anything that sparks your interest — because everything is part of your quintessential student experience.

Fraternity and sorority groups

Joining one of our fraternities or sororities offers a chance to be part of something bigger than yourself but that still fosters your individuality.

Our entire Greek system is built on the fundamental principles of leadership, growth, service and community, so you’ll learn to give back while forging deep bonds with friends who will continue to support you long after you’ve graduated.

Whether facing off with your friends and roommates in a series of competitive tug-of-war challenges, developing and choreographing lip sync battles against other fraternities or sororities or seeing who rocks the best toga, you will be getting to know each other, yourself and raising tens of thousands of dollars for philanthropic causes throughout the country.
