Student Organizations

Student organizations are a great way to connect and stay connected at CIU. Make your voice heard while representing your classmates on the Student Senate. Meet regularly with students of similar backgrounds. Express yourself in our literary and news publications, or just help organize a party for everyone! Stay current with the campus life activities calendar.
