Why Join a Student Organization?

Gain Valuable Skills

Students involved in co-curricular activities also gain valuable skills such as management, budgeting, collaboration, training, conferences, event planning, logistics, communication, conflict management, and much more! 

Get Involved on Campus

Almost 400 programs are sponsored or co-sponsored by 100 student organizations each year. Joining an org makes it easy to keep your finger on the pulse of UMSL, network with other students and professionals, and have fun.

Better Grades

Students involved in organizations and activities outside the classroom tend to perform better academically. Student leaders at UMSL have a higher grade point average than the all-campus average.

Learn and Grow

Members of student organizations also have opportunities to attend trainings and programs centered around organization development to enhance their organization and experience at UMSL.

Whether you have questions about how to host an event, how to budget for your org, or even how to start your own student organization, we have the training and resources to help.
