Student Activities

Registered Student Organizations

North Park’s Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) reflect students’ interests and a commitment to organizing related campus programs and activities. Most RSOs are sponsored, governed, and funded by the Student Government Association. RSOs do not necessarily reflect the views of the University’s parent denomination, the Evangelical Covenant Church.

Academic and Education Clubs

Many of North Park’s majors offer an academic club or chapter of a national honor society specific to that subject area. These groups help you extend your classroom learning and love of your subject to co-curricular activities, like community service, field trips, special research projects, and guest lectures.

Cultural Clubs

The Office of Diversity and Collaboratory for Urban and Intercultural Learning partner with SGA to facilitate the University’s student cultural organizations, providing faculty support and helping students ask big questions and celebrate their heritage.

Social Clubs

These are groups born out of students’ common interests. SGA reviews requests for funding (legislation presented to the Senate) to start clubs; students interested should contact one of their class senators to get the ball rolling. Here are just a few examples.

Student Publications

North Park’s long history of student publications include a newspaper, yearbook, literary magazine, and now a student magazine. With funding from SGA and connections with academic departments, these publications provide valuable hands-on experience in writing and publishing with hard-copy results for the entire campus community to enjoy.
