Student Activities and Organizations

Oxford is a place where first-year students can quickly find a place as active members of campus life. First-year students are starters on varsity athletic teams, leaders in student government, and lead performers in theater, chorale, and dance.

In fall semester, the Club Fair showcases each of Oxford’s student organizations, and the second-year student leaders of these groups enthusiastically recruit new student members. 

Below is a list of current clubs and organizations that provide a wide variety of opportunities that enrich the Oxford experience. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, remember that Oxford students can propose new clubs and activities.
