Clubs & Organizations
How much you get out of Scranton will depend on how much you get into – and there’s no shortage of ways to spend your time! In fact, 24 hours won’t seem like enough.
Get Active, Stay Active
There are more than 80 active clubs and organizations at the University, where you can bust a move with the Urban Dance Crew, prove your toughness on the men’s and women’s rugby clubs, or verbally – and politely – spar with the Debate Society.
Different types of student activities on campus include:
- Academic/honors organizations
- Cultural/ethnic groups
- Hobby/special interest groups
- Media organizations
- Political/social issues organizations
- Service/spiritual groups
- Student government/programming boards
If we don’t already have a club for what captivates you, create one. It couldn’t be easier to make Scranton your own! So find what piques your interests and dive in. Or find something completely new and give it a shot!
Students on the Programming Board plan more than 75 events each year. This includes our on-campus Battle of the Bands, bus trips to New York City, as well as concerts and shows on the Commons.
At Scranton, people get involved, stay on the weekends and always have something to do. Don’t believe me? Visit us to see for yourself.
