About Student Organizations at Wright State

Wright State University is home to nearly 200 registered student organizations that fall into various categories, including academic, coordinating, cultural, honorary, media, recreational, religious, residential, social, Greek, and special interest. During the academic year, these organizations hold events, raise money for numerous philanthropies, volunteer in the Greater Dayton area, offer leadership opportunities for their members, and promote diversity on campus—all while having fun! Stop by Student Involvement and Leadership (019 Student Union) or join us on Engage to see which organization(s) you would like to join.
