SBU Student Clubs and organizations

At SBU, your education expands beyond the classroom. Our goal is to provide learning and growth within every aspect of your experience. Weekly campus events provided by University Activities Council, annual tournaments and leagues offered by the Intramural Sports programs, and the numerous clubs and organizations available through Student Association are a few examples of how you can become involved.

SBU provides a great environment that really fosters community. Getting involved on campus has helped me meet new people and pursue my passions.

  • Student Association
    • SBU's Student Association (SA) serves as the bridge from the student body to University administration. SA's mission is to "Inform. Impact. Involve." SA informs students about what is happening and informs administration about students' ideas; positively impacts the SBU experience for both current and future students; and involves students outside of the classroom.
  • University Activities Council
    • SBU's University Activities Council (UAC) has four areas of leadership and service: Campus Activities, Major Events, Integration of Faith and Culture, and Publicity. Each of these areas is designed to provide opportunities for involvement while at SBU. Examples of opportunities include activities such as Spy Week and the Bowling Ball, traditions such as Homecoming and Mr. and Miss Southwest, concerts and student discussions about movies or cultural topics.
  • Welcome Week
    • SBU's new student orientation event, Welcome Week, is student-led and organized, allowing current SBU students the opportunity to guide and mentor new students through their transition to SBU.
