Student Organizations

Student organizations play an important role in campus life at The University of North Texas and in the G. Brint Ryan College of Business. Throughout the year, organizations sponsor a variety of extra and co-curricular activities for the campus community as well as participate in service projects on and off campus. In addition, student organizations provide a means for students to develop and refine leadership skills and to interact and network with their peers and with faculty and staff.

Joining a student organization gives you opportunities to expand and enhance your overall educational experience, improve your social life, gain self confidence, acquire leadership skills and learn how to function as a member of a group or a team. Getting involved in student organizations can be one of the greatest, most rewarding experiences you will have while you are in college. Check out the various student organizations offered and get involved!
