Student Organizations

Joining a campus organization is one of the best ways to become involved in campus life. Choose the organization(s) that fit your interests. The organizations you join build a network of peers and community members that can help as you enter the workforce. Organizations will truly enrich your university experience.

Take The First Step

The first step is identifying the right group or organization for you! These groups will help to create your individual Northwood experience and excel your future forward!
