Iowa State has allowed me to get involved from the second I walked onto campus. I've been able to develop leadership skills while also becoming immersed in the unique community Iowa State has to offer.

Student Organizations

One of our best traditions is joining one (or more!) of the 800+ student organizations on campus. Find a club that matches your academic and career goals, or discover an organization that fulfills you on a personal level. Whether it is baking, building, volunteering, or dancing, joining student organizations helps you find the people who love what you love. 

Not sure where to start? Search our Student Org Database for clubs that fit your interests and goals. Don't forget to check out ClubFest, a signature Student Engagement event that happens twice a year. Hundreds of clubs register for the event and are ready with informational handouts, displays and giveaways to highlight their club and recruit new members!
