Student Organizations

At HSU, we have a thriving student body that is highly involved within various Clubs and Organizations. No matter whether it is a special interest group, a Greek social club, an academic club, or an Intramural team, involvement in any group is what makes our students’ experiences the best they can be. We

constantly have students asking about creating new groups on our campus and we love getting them set up! It is great to see students get involved.
