Student Organizations

Students Painting

Student organizations are a great way for students to get involved on campus and pursue an interest or passion outside of the classroom. There are a number of student organizations at WSU Tri-Cities that are highly active and hold numerous events for all students throughout the year. Student organizations are at the heart of campus involvement.
