The beginning of a new school year is a great time for new students to join a registered student organization.  The University has over 150 registered student organizations (RSOs) that cover a wide variety of student interests. If your student doesn't find one that addresses their interests, they can start their own! 


For our students who are interested in joining a Fraternity or Sorority, recruitment is currently ongoing. For more information, by visit the Fraternity & Sorority Recruitment website.
