I know it can be scary to meet new people, especially
on a campus of 50,000+, but as a new student it's important to reach
out and make new friends. There are some great ways to do that here
at ASU ...
The best place to find information on ASU organizations
is on the Student
Organization Resource Center (SORC) site. Below are links
to some of the largest clubs and organizations on campus
Life- Greek Life is made up of five councils. The traditional
Interfraternity Council, composed of all male social fraternities
and the Panhellenic Council, comprised of all female social sororities,
are the largest groups. There is also the Multicultural Greek Council,
National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations, and the
National Pan-Hellenic Council (composed of predominately African
American fraternities and sororities).
Greek Life is a great way to get involved in the social, service,
and academic opportunities college life can offer. For more information,
contact the Greek Life Office on the 3rd floor of the Memorial Union.
Sports- So, you're worried about getting out of shape?
You can still be an athlete even if you don't compete at the NCAA
level. The Student
Recreation Complex hosts
a wide variety of sports including: basketball, wrestling, softball,
soccer, tennis, water polo, and many more.
Government- There are two great ways to get involved
in ASU's student government, Associated Students of Arizona State
on the ASU campus as an undergrad: Programming and Activities Board
and Undergraduate Student Government.
and Activities Board- This group hosts concerts, speeches,
and various events on the ASU campus. To get involved you can volunteer,
be elected, or be appointed.
Student Government-The best way to get involved in USG
is to volunteer for your college council. You can also run for a
senate seat in your college, or an executive position. USG helps
to allocate the funds for student organizations, they lobby the
state legislature, city council, and board of regents, and they
petition for the university.
