Being a college student is about finding opportunities to learn about one's self, whether in or out of the classroom. Students who take advantage of opportunities to become involved at WKU graduate from our institution at a higher rate than the ones who do not. The Department of Student Activities works to provide co-curricular activities for those who want to become involved at Western Kentucky University. Whether it is a student organization, student government, leadership programs, campus wide programming, Downing Student Union (DSU) activities, or volunteerism programs, there is something for each student who wants to become involved.
We have an outstanding staff that is ready and willing to help you explore the endless opportunities. We encourage you to take advantage of our programs, as well as the many others that WKU has to offer!!
Student organizations at Western Kentucky University provide an incredible opportunity to meet new people, build leadership and event planning skills, share ideas, and make connections across campus. WKU is the home to over 300 student organizations providing opportunities for students to engage with a wide variety of interests and activities. This involvement can provide students a foundation for success, a passion for learning and a commitment to responsible global citizenship, while fostering creativity and service to others. Organizations can not only provide membership, but a safe home from which students can pursue their passions.
There is a wide range of student organizations to choose from! Categories include Campus Ministries, Departmental, Fraternity, General, Honors, Intramural-Recreation, Professional, Service, Sorority, and Student Representative.

The Student Activities offices are located on the second floor of the Downing Student Union in 2059.
