Passion Welcome Here
If you’ve got a passion, newfound hobby, or budding interest, there’s a group of students on our campus excited to embrace it with you. With over 150 clubs and organizations, not only will you find plenty of opportunities to get involved, but you’ll be surprised by the unexpected connections you’ll make with each one.
On average, students collectively hold about 400 leadership positions through clubs and organizations alone. You can also become a Community Assistant (we call them CAs) or an Orientation Leader (known as OLs), work as a faculty assistant, become captain of a club or intramural team, or any number of other leadership positions available across campus. Once you discover your passion, you can find opportunities anywhere.
Class Councils & Student Government
With councils for each class year and the Thelomathesian Society governing the entire student body, you can gain hands-on experience with leadership and politics right on campus. Or join any of our many other political organizations like Amnesty International, Model UN, Model Organization of American States, SLU Democrats, or SLU Republicans.
Arts and Entertainment
With an art gallery, University theatre, and entertainment venues across campus, you’ll be able to engage with and explore a diverse range of artistic and entertainment interests. Organizations include the Association for Campus Entertainment, Creative Writing Club, Dance Ensemble, Film Club, Performance Arts Annex Club, the Java Barn, numerous musical ensembles, and many more.
Outdoor and Environmental Activities
Surrounded by the natural beauty of the North Country, there are limitless new and exciting ways to take advantage of our location while bonding with others outdoors. Current organizations include the Environmental Action Organization, Laurentian Paddlesports, Outing Club, Seed to Table, Skeet and Trapshooting Club, and many more.
Student Media Organizations
Capture and share the stories of our community while exploring your interest in media and communications. Become a writer or editor for The Hill News, our award-winning student-run newspaper, host your own radio show for KSLU, or investigate underreported stories with Weave News.
