Something for Everyone—Clubs and Organizations

With more than 70 clubs and organizations, you're sure to find one or two...or more that match your interests and passions. C.A.R.E. provides a platform for students interested in social justice. The Accounting Association organizes networking events with area professionals, while the Outing Club explores the natural beauty of our great New England backyard.

Golden Hours Weekend Programming Series

Every Friday and Saturday night during the academic year while classes are in session, students will be able to attend an on-campus program during the Western New England Golden Hours of 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. 

Music, movies on Commonwealth lawn, bands, game night...there's always a variety of things to do each weekend at Western New England University. Some activities are just plain fun, while others have an academic or service component. Whatever you choose, dive in and be an active participant.

Get Involved—Right From the Start.

Students become involved usually within the first two weeks they are here as first year or transfer students. The Office Student Involvement and Leadership sponsored "Student Involvement Expo" offers students an opportunity to meet the student leaders of each organization and also see what they are planning for the year.
