Student Organizations

Joining a student organization is a simple process...and a rewarding one. Organizations provide you a peer group of students with similar interests; which can become a support system for your educational journey, an outlet to be engaged in the campus community, or to simply have some fun! Students participating in organizations gain a host of skills and leadership experiences to enhance their educational or career goals and networks. Below are the clubs and organizations that are active at Bellevue University, as well as the contacts to request more information.
