Student Organizations

Join an organization

Student organizations at UW-Eau Claire range from the academic, professional and political to the spiritual, cultural, creative and athletic. Involvement in campus organizations is an important part of the university's total education program. These groups offer social and service opportunities for their members, the university, and the community at large. Membership can broaden acquaintances, develop leadership ability, build decision-making and problem-solving skills, and complement classroom instruction. Part of your involvement on campus includes the Blugold Connect system, the University's online student engagement platform.

Blugold Connect

This online platform will be your one-stop connection to engagement and leadership opportunities at UW-Eau Claire. Every student on campus will have access to Blugold Connect, and as a user, you can explore over 210 clubs, organizations, departments, and programs on campus. This online community will allow users to create events, check-in at events through your mobile phone, manage your student organization, participate in campus elections and much more!

The ability to play a part in events and experiences across campus and the community, big and small, and learning how to work with a team to make things happen are the most important takeaways that I'll leave UWEC with and carry with me forever.
