UVa-Wise has more than 50 active student clubs and organizations. Student clubs and organizations are a vital component of campus life at The University of Virginia’s College at Wise. Co-curricular involvement leads to stronger school spirit and enhanced leadership development — not to mention a happier, well-rounded student body. Here you will find information on how to form your own student organization, how to join an existing club or organization, policies and procedures & the Student Organization Handbook, and forms that are essential to the success of a club or organization. Should you have any questions, please contact Sarah Smith in the Office of Student Activities on the 3rd floor of the Slemp Student Center.
UVa-Wise has a strong history of student involvement and the development of new clubs and organizations on campus. In general, a new organization has to have a minimum of 5 student members, an advisor, an organization constitution and then be approved by the Student Government Association. Students who wish to start a club or organization should contact the Assistant Director of Student Activities & Recreation to schedule an appointment. The Assistant Director of Student Activities & Recreation will help student leaders develop their organization’s constitution and will guide them through the approval process. For more information, please see the Student Organization Handbook below.
HOW TO JOIN
Get involved! Studies show that students who are actively involved in campus life succeed in college. Clubs and organizations provide excellent leadership opportunities to students and enrich the undergraduate experience. Students interested in joining an existing club or organization at UVa-Wise should contact that organization’s president or advisor, or meet with the Assistant Director of Student Activities. Each club and organization is unique and has its own membership requirements, fees, meeting times, etc. See the Club & Organization Directory below for president and advisor contact information.
