Student organizations

College life is more than books and classwork! Get involved on campus by joining a student club or organization.

Student organizations are a great way to network, build your resume and further explore your interests outside the classroom. Being part of a student organization can help you make important connections with your peers (who are future professional colleagues), with local professionals through mentoring programs and field trips and with national student and professional organizations that may help you with your long-term career plans and goals.

Student organizations are also a lot of fun and a fantastic opportunity to enhance your university experience, meet other students who share your interests and give back to the community. There are over 1000 clubs and organizations at ASU. Learn more about the School of Art clubs below, or visit the ASU Student Organizations website to explore all the opportunities. Maybe you'll even want to start your own club!
