With more than 250 student clubs and organizations, you can pursue the activities you enjoy, discover new passions, find people who share your interests, and develop your leadership skills along the way. There’s something for everyone—fraternities and sororities, service organizations, intramural sports, campus media, music ensembles, political groups, debate and much more. You can even leave a legacy on campus by starting a new student organization through the Center for Student Involvement.

For me, Truman is made by the people I have met and the people who are found across the school. In one aspect, this is found in the organizations across campus: Greek letters painting the pavements, LARP-ing coloring the Quad, political activism sculpting the sidewalks…I feel as though everyone has a purpose — a niche that every individual can fit into.
