Student Organizations

Michigan State University has over 900 registered Student Organizations; there is something for everyone here at State!

RSOs cover a wide range of topics and interest areas, including but not limited to: academic, business, environmental, international, political, racial/ethnic, religious, women’s interests, and sports and leisure.

The Department of Student Life recognizes these organizations with the University through an annual registration process, starting August 1st. Once registered, RSOs can plan and sponsor activities on campus, apply for funding, and participate at events.

Involve@State is Michigan State University’s Engagement Portal for students, staff, faculty, registered student organizations, major governing organizations, and University departments.  The goal of Involve@State is to connect you, the student, to become engaged in co-curricular and educational opportunities.  This site will also be used by registered student organizations to register or re-register with the University and request event space.
