Clubs and Organizations

With over 70 clubs and organizations to choose from, the challenge is not ‘will I get involved?” but rather “how do narrow down the choices?” Involvement opportunities range from the active off campus trips sponsored by the Outing Club to the exciting but more passive array of video game tournaments sponsored by the Role Players organization (WARP) featured at the semi-annual Nerd Day! Most of the academic departments have a partnership with a student organization and is a great example of the collaborative nature that abounds on campus. The Class Councils sponsor campus wide entertainment that really ignites class pride ready to be displayed at the ‘clash of the classes” at Midnight Madness. Many students start their ‘active participation” by visiting the Student Activities Involvement Expo hosted by the Office during the second week of classes. Look around, opportunities abound.

Each class council is responsible for organizing two Fridays events each year as well some additional programming. Occasionally there are programs specific to each of the individual classes, however the majority of the events are open to the campus as a whole. Some events hosted by class councils include Wings Over WNE, Minute to Win It, Flag Football, WNE Walks, and many more. Each year the Councils work collaboratively on events such as Midnight Madness and Lights Out. Class Councils are a great opportunity for fun and games as well as leadership development.
