Student Organizations

Student organizations are one of the best ways to get involved on campus. Assembled under an array of causes, identities, and interests, student organizations at the George Washington University put on some of the most highly anticipated campus events and offer endless opportunities for involvement and leadership each year! GW offers over 500+ student organizations, so there is something for everyone!

GW’s gateway to all student organizations is Engage, an online platform that allows students to connect with opportunities for involvement. It’s where you can access information about any student organization at GW, find out about events and activities on campus, manage your organization’s communications and finances, and stay up to date with life outside of the classroom. Use the search bar in GW Engage to search by organization name, event name, keyword, or category.

"My first year at GW, I signed up for many student orgs because I was excited to get my hands on as many college experiences as I could. Plural because when you join student organizations, you dip your toes in many industries and categories of life, and discover passions you probably didn't even know existed."
