Student Clubs & Organizations

Student-Run Organizations = Get Engaged on Campus!

The Student Programming, Activities & Resource Center (SPARC) is committed to enhancing the college experience by involving students in co-curricular programs, cultural experiences, leadership training, and community building. We strongly believe that student organizations and activities should encourage involvement by all students regardless of sex, race, age, religion, sexual orientation, or nationality.

If you have additional questions, we encourage you to stop by the SPARC, Tivoli 260. Our staff will help you join an organization or start one of your own.

You are encouraged to explore opportunities outside the classroom that support your academic development and growth as an individual. Students start many organizations. Students and faculty have designed these to promote new experiences important to campus life. If you do not find an organization that fits your style and goals, we encourage you to create a new organization around something you are interested in, such as a hobby or outside activity.
