Are you interested in learning from a professional accountant? Do you like to debate ideas and issues? Would you like to enter an advertising competition? Joining academic organizations is a fun way to meet people in your major, network, participate in academic events and get advice from professionals in various fields.
If it isn’t covered anywhere else, it is probably covered here. Many international students participate in the Globally Minded Student Association (GMSA). If you’re a fan of Frisbee, you can join the UST Ultimate Frisbee team or the Disc Golf Society. Interested in exploring your faith? St. Thomas has several faith-based organizations. There also is a St. Thomas Film Society, a social justice club, a volunteer club, a sailing club…
You can join crew and see the banks of the Mississippi River every day for practice, compete in ski competitions against other schools, or represent St. Thomas on our men’s or women’s lacrosse teams. Either way, you can stay active at UST.
Most St. Thomas students are involved in activities outside of the classroom, and the best part is, if there isn’t a club or organization in a specific area of your interest, you can start your own!
Tip: Many of the clubs offer free food at some of their meetings. The more you’re involved, the more you eat!
