Clubs & Organizations

St. Thomas University offers students an opportunity to become involved in many different clubs and organizations on campus. Clubs and organizations range in their goals from academic, social and athletic to awareness building. If you don’t see the right club for you, think about starting a new club! Additionally, new clubs are always forming, so check out the Student Involvement Fairs, club meetings, and visit the Student Government Association Office (SGA) to stay up-to-date. Being a part of a campus club or organization can greatly enrich your experience at St. Thomas University.

Student organizations form the basis of co-curricular life at St. Thomas University and are an important element to educating the total person. Outlined below is the process by which you can propose a student organization that is recognized by the Student Affairs and the University.

A student organization seeking recognition must be non-discriminatory and open to the entire STU undergraduate and graduate populations. All proposed student organizations and any affiliated national organizations must adhere to the goals and mission of St. Thomas University and the principles of the Catholic Church. Please note that not all proposed new student organizations will be approved based on several factors including but not limited to the number of similar organizations, the interest and sustainability, the use of campus resources, likelihood of sustaining over time, appropriateness, and support of the mission and vision of the University and the Catholic Church. In addition, no organization can be in support of any specific political candidate for any election.
