Clubs and Student Involvement
With more than 16,000 students on campus, it's no surprise there are more than 200 student-run clubs and organizations to choose from, including Aggies for Africa, the clogging club, the Polynesian Student Union, and everything in between. And that number is always growing because students who don't find exactly what they're looking for may start their own clubs. The possibilities are endless. Check out the snowboarding rail jam that students in the entrepreneurship club coordinated right in the middle of campus in 2010.
Student body officers represent the student voice in the discussions and decisions that shape all aspects of Aggie life, both academically and socially. Members of the executive council and college senate not only get great experience and a killer line on a resume, but major stipends as well.
Service clubs have sponsored local athletes participating in the Special Olympics World Games, donated 35,000 books for schools in India and Nepal, and plenty more. Many USU classes also participate in service-learning projects where students put their knowledge to the test through helping others.
Students looking for leadership and service opportunities, membership in close-knit national societies of high achievers, an endless array of friends and activities, and a house close to campus may want to get involved with Greek life. USU has eight sororities and fraternities, all of which are extremely active on campus.
