Student-Centered Resources, Facilities, and Activities
Organizations and Activities
Many opportunities for cocurricular involvement exist through participation in student organizations, clubs, and activities. Several academic departments sponsor departmental clubs and honoraries. Sports, religious, and special-interest clubs provide many avenues for exploring your interests with a group. In addition, the Office of Student Life conducts leadership training programs and offers community service opportunities.
The Union Activities Board (UAB), operated by students for students, schedules a wide variety of events including videos, guest speakers, comedy/novelty entertainment, concerts, recreational tournaments, and cultural activities. For students who wish to put their creative talent to work, there are several student media outlets on campus. The student newspaper, The Guardian, which utilizes editors, writers, proofreaders, salespeople, and photographers, is published weekly during the academic year. The literary magazine Nexus comes out three times a year and includes writing and original artwork from members of the university community. Students can also work on and off the air at the student-run campus radio station, WWSU-FM.
Many cultural opportunities on campus allow students both to see and to participate in the performing arts. The Department of Music presents many concerts and recitals by student and faculty soloists and choral and instrumental groups. University Theatre presents several major productions, several one-act plays, and at least one children's theatre production during the academic year. The Union Activities Board sponsors a variety of concerts, speakers, and cultural events and offers a highly regarded film series featuring foreign, cult classics, and avant garde films.
