Student Organizations

Lead, follow, or make up your own thing.

What’s it like to be a Carolina student? It’s being part of a community that takes pride in tradition and school spirit, and in offering the resources you need to develop your talents and leadership skills. It’s about creating lifelong friendships and memories with some of the most interesting, indescribable, dissimilar-yet-on-the-same-page students in the world.

With 800 student organizations,  you’ll find many avenues to explore your personal and intellectual interests and embrace your passion for music, the performing arts, journalism, creative writing, student government, politics or international cultures. We also offer more than 50 intramural sports for all skill levels, so you get the chance to push your physical boundaries, too.
