Get to know others with similar interests or learn something new by joining one of our 70 clubs and organizations. You can join a preprofessional group to start building career skills, hang out with Harry Potter lovers, align with cultural groups like the Black student union, or explore faith in a spiritual organization. And if you don't see something you like, you can start your own club!

There are lots of ways to play. Softball, yoga and trivia knights are some, but you'll also find Ultimate Frisbee, flag football or pickup soccer. These intramural and recreational activities are fun ways to enjoy and meet new classmates.
