Student Organizations

So many choices! So much to see and do. Arcadia University wants you involved in the pulse of campus life. We encourage you to get involved in our many clubs, organizations and recreational activities. 

Our student organizations provide you with opportunities to meet others who have similar interests and to develop leadership, organizational and management skills. Participation broadens your circle of friends and enriches your university experience.  Membership to any of the following organizations is open to all Arcadia University students, unless otherwise noted within its description.

Interested in challenging yourself beyond club membership? In addition to leadership positions within clubs, the Student Affairs Office supports a variety of leadership opportunities.
