Student organizations provide leadership development and social growth that complement academic life. Most organizations are open to
any member of the student body, while some have GPA or other requirements for membership. Student organizations are governed by a
constitution and supervised by a faculty or staff advisor. Students who have interests beyond our current campus organizations should
contact a staff member of the Student Life staff about creating a new student organization.
