Student Clubs and Organizations
High energy and commitment characterize every aspect of life at UVM. The Department of Student Life along with the Student Government Association keep UVM's student clubs and organizations running like well-oiled machines. Student Life considers these main categories of involvement:
Community service programs
Tutor at a prison, work with people whose second language is English, be a big buddy to a local child, and more. Chances to get involved with the Burlington community are plentiful.
How to get involved: Volunteer opportunities (Volunteers in Action, Alpha Phi Omega, residence hall service projects, and more) each have their own distinct contacts for getting involved. View contacts and more ways to engage on the Student Life website.
Plan events and laugh with comedians such as Dane Cook, Bo Burnham, Zack Galifianakis, or Jon Stewart; or rock with groups like Jurassic 5, The Disco Biscuits, Thievery Corporation, or The Roots. Bring other fun, high quality and diverse events to campus by getting involved.
How to get involved: Campus Programs plans in collaboration with student groups like the UVM Program Board and UVM Concerts Bureau. Read more on the Student Life website.
Volunteering, formal events, organized fund raisers, camaraderie: Greek Life remains a proud tradition at UVM and attracts many students to its eight fraternities and five sororities.
How to get involved: Learn more on the Greek Life website.
Find the leader within or flex your leadership muscles! Get energized on the six-day UVM leadership TREK, become an agent for change and attend the Next Step Social Justice retreat, or more.
How to get involved: Each leadership organization has its own contact information. Learn more on the Student Life website.
Try your pen at journalism for The Vermont Cynic student newspaper; dabble in spinning CDs at WRUV 90.1 FM's student-run radio station; hone your on-air personality and T.V. skills on the UVMTv student-run station.

Need a beautiful setting? No problem. Vermont's natural playground encourages involvement in the Outing Club, Adventure Ropes Course or with a TREK (for new students).

Student Government Association recognized clubs
Aikido club, a cappella singing, dancing, canoeing, college republicans, student-run farms, service opportunities, media, even an Elvish language club. The Student Government Association's list of over 150 recognized student clubs is as varied as the students who join. View sports and clubs-at-a-glance (PDF).

Intramurals and club sports
Maybe you make friends best by sweating with them: consider club sports through SGA and intramural sports or fitness programs through Campus Recreation.
