Activities & Organizations

Discover and explore new interests

Some of the most important events in your college life take place outside the classroom. With nearly 180 student organizations on campus, you have unlimited ways to serve your community or those in need, explore new interests, sharpen your competitive edge or just be part of something that's important to you. Especially if fun is important to you, too.

Get involved. Whether you want to serve or to lead, there's a group or organization that needs you. Also, campus organizations develop team-building skills that make you a valuable asset no matter where your career takes you.

Have fun. SMU hosts more than 500 performances, concerts and cultural exhibits each year.

Feed your head. At its afternoon forum for students, the Willis M. Tate Distinguished Lecture Series lets you interact with world leaders and famous figures. Other lecture series feature our world-class faculty and many well-recognized scholars speaking on a variety of topics and groundbreaking research findings.
