When we say “College is more than going to class,” we mean it. There are hundreds of student clubs and organizations for you to join—from cultural to community service, political to academic, hobby, sport, religious and more. Plan a dance marathon fundraiser with LoboTHON or join the Student Alumni Association. Game with UNM Esports or promote food sustainability with the Lobo Gardens Club. Don’t see the right group for you? Start your own. Student organizations are a great way to meet people, make friends, and discover—together—what it means to be a Lobo.
The history of Fraternity & Sorority Life at the University dates back more than 120 years and has had a significant impact. Today, our students, 41% of whom are first-generation, are committed to making a difference in the communities they live and learn. With a strong focus on academic performance and leadership development, it is no wonder why students in Fraternity & Sorority Life are found in leadership positions across campus. We are very proud to have a system devoted to change and positive growth.
