Clubs and Organizations

Live music, picnics, speakers, comedy, and other numerous activities bring students, faculty, and staff together to build a stronger university community.

Urbana’s student organizations include clubs formed around common interests, committees that plan campus-wide programs, organizations that relate to academic fields, and groups with a religious or cultural mission. Whatever your interests or talents, YOU can join a related student organization.

Don’t see the opportunity that you were looking for? We’ll be happy to help you start your very own club or organization that fits your interest. Contact the Campus Life Office located on the Lower Level of the Student Center (937-484-1262 or mjoseph@urbana.edu) for more information about starting a new organization or about any current group.

From Our Alumni

"Urbana University gave me the opportunity to flourish as a student, as an athlete, and, more importantly, as a person. Urbana taught me that it is not our successes that make us who we are, but instead it is our failures that reveal our true character."
