Clubs and Organizations

Our students are active in all aspects of campus life. What’s your passion? Chances are you’ll find someone who shares it.

With over 100 student organizations and countless activities to choose from, life at W&L is never dull. In the past few years, enthusiastic members of the Outing Club built a new and expanded bouldering wall in the Outing Club Barn. Students with a keen interest in dentistry started the Pre-Dental Club, teaming up with local providers to staff a remote area medical clinic. And a bunch of students with a passion for cheese and philanthropy started a campus nonprofit called FeelGood, selling grilled cheese at pop-up delis to benefit global hunger and poverty relief organizations. From special interest, to activism, to multicultural and diversity groups, most students get involved with at least one club on campus.

Not sure what to join? At the beginning of every year, clubs and organizations set up booths on Cannan Green to explain who they are to potential new members (and hand out free t-shirts and other swag to students who become members). It's your chance to talk to current club members and organizational leadership, and a great way to meet new people and find activities and events to attend and help organize depending on your interest.
