Student Organizations

With over 200 registered student organizations (RSOs) and co-curricular organizations, UMass Amherst covers a lot of ground and most interests. Joining a student organization is the ideal way to make yourself at home, get some experience, and simply have fun.

The groups include community service organizations, student government, ethnic and cultural groups, religious and spiritual organizations, fraternity and sororities, student run businesses, media related groups, groups that grow from academic interests, and groups dedicated to athletics and recreation, socializing, arts and entertainment, and politics.
