Student Organizations

Join an organization

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 new Blugold Connect system! Blugold Connect is the University's online student engagement platform.

NEW Student Engagement Platform: BLUGOLD CONNECT!! 

This new 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 230 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!

So many ways to get involved!
