Types of student groups


Greeklife (sorority and fraternity)

At many universities, GreekLife accounts for the largest collective student group on campus. Although students are separated into varying sorority houses for women and fraternity houses for men, GreekLife is undoubtedly one of the most popular student groups throughout the country. Members come to refer to one another as “brothers” or “sisters” because of the level of camaraderie and friendship facilitated through the participation in GreekLife.



Case competitions

Usually organized by specific schools within the context of a larger university system, case competitions provide students with exceptional opportunities to interface with students from other universities. In many cases, these competitions bring students together from all over the world to compete in settings designed to foster analytical abilities, critical thinking skills, presentation and persuasion techniques, and leadership skills.


Model UN

Model UN training is designed for students that are studying politics, foreign affairs, international relations, and other majors related to diplomacy. In these settings, students have opportunities to role play as delegates participating on various simulated United Nations committees.





In recent years, hackathons have become more and more popular across university and college campuses, and it’s easy to see why. A hackathon is a great way to budding developers to hone in on their skills and make friendships at the same time.



Debate club

In our world today, we can see many examples of how becoming entrenched in our beliefs blinds us to other viewpoints and perspectives. Debate clubs at universities throughout the world are designed to open students’ eyes to other viewpoints and provide healthy platforms for students to share ideas and debate solutions to some of our world’s most complex issues.



Theater groups

Many students that are interested in the performing arts start by joining a theater group or drama club, as they’re known on certain campuses. These groups provide students with opportunities to work on specific productions, as well as build their skills and confidence through acting exercises and classwork targeted to theatrical performance.
