Whether you’ve got a passion for politics, a shine for Shakespeare, or you’re just looking for a fun and interesting way to make new friends, student organizations are a great way to get involved. There are currently more than 300 recognized student organizations on campus and they cover every interest you can think of—academic, cultural, political, professional, recreational, and more.

  • Basketball Analytics Club
  • Fashion and Design Society
  • CryptoCuse
  • Danceworks
  • African Student Union
  • A Cappela Council at SU
  • Alpha Chi Sigma - Pi
  • Slow Food

The benefit of being involved in Slow Food and student organizations in general is you’re able to truly find your people within a certain niche. The people in Slow Food get as excited about an heirloom tomato as I do.
