Student Organizations

Davidson students work and study hard, but they still make time outside of class to connect with other students across a broad range of interests. There are more than 200 student organizations on campus that show interest and cultivate awareness in many areas including culture, politics, arts, entertainment, publications, religion, athletics, diversity, civic engagement, and more.

Decide what's important to you then choose a couple of organizations and commit to participating in a thoughtful manner. Students are also able to create new organizations by working with the Student Activities Office.

Academic Clubs and Societies: Connect with other students, faculty members, and industry professionals working within diverse areas of study, from neuroscience to microfinance and more.

Arts and Leisure: From baking to bee keeping, you can find other students who share your unique interests.

Civic Engagement: Join in dialogue and action with others who share your political and social beliefs, working with groups on campus or in partnership with national organizations.
