Joining a student organization related to your discipline can help you:

  • academically by adding to your classroom and clinical learning with discipline-specific activities
  • professionally by keeping you current on the latest news about your field as well as setting up networking practices and opportunities that may lead to internships and jobs
  • socially by hanging out with other students who have similar interests
  • financially through special savings for products or services

Our department has two student organizations:
