Student Organizations

Beneath our modest size, there are many organizations on the Virginia Wesleyan campus, including some that are bound to catch your interest. From our award-winning newspaper The Marlin Chronicle to academic honor organizations and Greek Life, there's something for everyone. And, if there's something you feel passionate about that's not represented, you're welcome to start an organization to pursue your interest. Becoming part of a college organization is a great way to get involved with campus life, meet people who are interested in the same things you are, and grow as an individual. It's one more way to compound the value of your Virginia Wesleyan experience. Reach out to the Student Leader via their email or the organization’s Instagram to learn how to get involved.

To start a new student organization, please use the active student organization request form. All student organizations will need to meet the following requirements: 

  • 5+ active members who are currently enrolled at the University (exception: fraternities, sororities, and honor societies may have less)
  • A mission statement or description of purpose
  • A faculty/staff advisor (full- or part-time employee of VWU, but not a student) to guide and support the organization. If you have difficulty identifying an advisor, the Office of Student Engagement may be able to assist.
  • An Executive Board with, at minimum, two officers that indicates a chain of command. We recommend four (President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary)
  • An up-to-date constitution (a template is available online) and can be included in the online registration process.

Please refer to the Student Organization Manual for more information.
