Registered Student Organizations

Welcome to the home for the over 1000 Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) at Michigan State University (MSU)!

RSOs are a great way to make friends, build community and to journey with through your college experience!

An MSU RSO is a volunteer group of enrolled students organized to obtain certain goals and objectives. The goals and objectives of these organizations are met through education, social, cultural, religious or philanthropic activities. These activities enhance and support MSU students, the university and the community. Engaged participation in student organizations benefits students’ growth and education while attending the university.

The RSO Team leans on four (4) key theories to ground our work with Registered Student Organizations; Astin's Student Involvement Theory, Tinto's Model of Student Departure, B. Magolda's Theory of Self-Authoriship, and S.R. Komives' Social Change Model of Leadership Development. For more information on these check out this resource: MSU RSO Key Theories

This website is a resource for both RSOs and students searching for ways to be involved! Check out all the info below!
