Student Activities

The University offers many diverse opportunities for participation in extracurricular activities and encourages the development of student interest groups and activities. The University Commons and Student Activities Office coordinates all campus activities and organizational programs, maintains a complete schedule of activities, and is responsible for general management of the University Commons.

Involvement in extracurricular activities is a vital part of student life at the University of West Florida. The University officially registers over 100 student organizations in six categories: special interests, academic interests, professional societies, religious organizations, Greek life (fraternities and sororities), and honor societies. These clubs and organizations extend learning from the classroom into real-life situations as students learn to plan events, develop budgets, promote activities, and manage other people through delegation. Students may also start their own organization or student interest group.

The University Commons and Student Activities Office maintains the official roster of all registered student organizations. The University also offers extracurricular activities in music, theatre, forensics, recreation, and various other organizations. In addition, there are many activities and events in which students may participate, assist, or organize. Please refer to the University Commons and Student Activities Website at uwf.edu/ucommons for details.
