My Experience with Registered Student Organizations

By K Wheeler, DO-IT Staff

Being a part of a Registered Student Organization (RSO) on campus has been a really important part of my Husky Experience. It’s a great place to make friends, but it’s more than that. Over time, I was able to work my way up the ranks, taking on leadership roles until I became president of my RSO, Harry Potter Club.

According to the RSO Directory, there are 854 Student Organization on campus. We have everything from pop culture clubs, like Harry Potter Club, to cultural clubs, like the African Student Association. We also have major or field centric clubs, like the Neurobiology Club. There’s something for everyone! Find a club that’s right for you on the RSO website.
