Get Involved with a Registered Student Organization

Getting involved is a wise choice and Rockhurst has nearly 70 organizations from which to choose. Through your involvement, you will have the opportunity to meet new people, develop your interest and have fun. If you do not find an organization that meets your interests, you can start an organization to bring fellow students together.

Registered Student Organizations (RSO) provide students the opportunity to form and develop organizations based on a variety of personal, social, political, recreational, religious, and common interests. Through your involvement with an RSO you will have the opportunity to meet new people, develop your interest and have fun. If you do not find an organization that meets your interests, you can start an organization to bring fellow students together.

Register your Organization

Currently, there are more than 70 organizations to explore.

Through your involvement with an RSO you are able to take advantage of our RSO education workshops (budgeting, event planning, etc.), RSO Resources (office mailboxes, van reservations, etc.) and apply for funds for your events from the Allocations Committee.

Below is a list of the RSOs. RSOs are responsible for keeping their websites up to date and responding to any inquiries you make regarding the organization.
