Student Organizations

Student organizations. Students walking by booths and tables outside.


Join an on-campus club. Registered Student Organizations (more often referred to as RSOs or clubs) are a great way to meet other people who share your passions. You’ll find clubs for almost every interest: academic, cultural, political, recreational, spiritual, service, social or special interest.

Explore current clubs via CougSync. If you don’t find what you're looking for, start a new club.

Clubs and student organizations are required to register each academic year. Learn more about the RSO registration process, and review the RSO handbook (PDF).

Student government

Get connected with your student government, the Associated Students of Washington State University Vancouver (ASWSUV).

Run for office and become a student leader. Coordinate student activities and advocate for student interests to campus administrators and state representatives.
