Research has shown that students who get involved in campus organizations and activities have a greater degree of success staying in college and completing their degrees. They are often more successful in their searches for jobs afterwards because of the leadership development that comes with such participation.

Membership in international student organizations is a great way to meet new people, preserve and promote your culture(s), interact with other cultures, gain leadership experience and have fun. Remember that all registered student organizations are open to any University student regardless of race, creed, religion, class, national background or disabled condition.

There are over 120 student organizations registered with the Campus Activities Office. Space does not permit us to list all of them here, but we include a sampling including the organizations that are specifically oriented to international students and their needs:
