Student Organizations

Find your group (and yourself). Get involved in student organizations.

When we say there’s a lot to do at IU, we’re not bragging. There are more than 750 student organizations currently on the books—and that number is always growing.

Some are familiar, like the Chess Club, the Cycling Club, and IU Student Government.

But did you know that IU has a Chinese Calligraphy Club? Or Gaming@IU? And not one but six comedy groups?

Help your community, or the world

IU students completed more than 225,000 service hours last fall—equal to about $6 million worth of good works done for our community and our world. And you can be a part of it.

Many students embark on service trips to countries around the globe during spring break and the summer months. Many more belong to service groups focused on addressing global issues. All of these are considered IU Corps experiences.

Go Greek

With more than 70 fraternities and sororities on campus, there is a tremendous amount of variety within the Greek system.

Almost 20 percent of IU students belong to a Greek organization—and not just because of the lifelong friendships Greek life helps them build. It’s also a great way to get involved in the community, learn about leadership, and make a real difference with philanthropic efforts.

Explore your artsy side

Whether you’re an accomplished vocalist, a film buff, an artist, or a dancer, at IU, you'll find plenty of groups populated by people just like you.

We take the arts seriously here—even when we’re playing around. Did you know that the a capella group Straight No Chaser got its start at IU?

It’s true. Join us and who knows? Someday we might be talking about you.
