Find students, faculty, and staff members that share your interests by joining a student organization. Co-curricular activities and organizations are important to student growth and development. Numerous departmental, honorary, service, and special interest organizations have been developed in response to student inquiries. Officers of all student organizations must have at least a 2.0 grade point average and be enrolled as full-time or part-time students. This applies to all members of student organizations, unless otherwise specified by the organization's constitution.
