Clubs and Organizations

With over 70 clubs and organizations to choose from, the challenge is not "will I get involved?” but rather “how do I narrow down the choices?” Involvement opportunities range from off-campus trips sponsored by the Outing Club to the exciting array of video game tournaments sponsored by the gaming club (WARP). Most of the academic departments have a partnership with a student organization and provide collaborative opportunities between academic and co-curricular life. The Class Councils sponsor campus-wide entertainment that ignites class pride ready to be displayed at the "Dancing with the G-Bears" competition. Many students start their ‘active participation” by visiting the Student Activities Involvement Expo hosted by Student Involvement and Leadership during the second week of classes. Look around, opportunities abound!

  • Class Councils

    Class Councils are designed to challenge and grow students’ leadership potential, allow for class unity, and become the catalyst for great friendships. Each Class Council is responsible for planning two "Fridays" programs each year as well as providing additional campus events. Occasionally there are programs specific to each of the individual classes; however, the majority of the events are open to the campus community as a whole. Some events hosted by the Class Councils include WNE Walks, Lights Out, Senior Week, and many more. Class Councils are a great opportunity for fun, games, and leadership development.
