Student Organizations

In this Section
At Clarkson University, developing leadership skills is an important part of a student’s overall college experience and can lead you towards personal and academic success.  The Office of Student Organizations works with a variety of student-run organizations to offer educational and social opportunities aimed at enhancing campus life.

Expanding a student's learning outside of the classroom is as easy as becoming a member of a the Clarkson University Student Association (CUSA); exploring membership in more than 100 students organizations, including 13 fraternities and sororities; working with the surrounding community;  or attending leadership trainings and workshops.  Benefits include strengthening appreciation for diversity, developing responsible decision-making skills, establishing professional contacts, and forming lasting friendships.  


Where can a student go to join an existing student organization?  Can new organizations be created?

A list of current student organizations is available at Your son or daughter can also stop by the Student Organization/CUSA office located on the main level of the Student Center.  Clarkson encourages students to bring new ideas to the university.  They just need to pick up a registration card and we will help transform their idea into a new opportunity.

What about joining a fraternity or sorority? Do the members have to live in the chapter house?

Students interested in joining Greek organizations must possess a 2.5 cumulative GPA.  Men must also have sophomore standing and women must have second-semester freshman standing.  Each chapter has different requirements regarding living at the chapter house.  Clarkson provides off-campus Greek housing exemptions to academically eligible students.
