Clubs and Organizations

Get involved at SAU

At St. Ambrose, you can join or lead a student club or organization – we have dozens!

Working side-by-side with your peers, there's a real belonging that deepens your drive and focus on academics, your career, faith and spirituality, social justice, service to others, or a personal passion.

Student organizations such as the Marketing Club and Student Nurses Association let you explore career possibilities right away. Joining athletic teams or music ensembles enable you to feel something larger than yourself. Ambrosians for Peace and Justice and Model UN illuminate the world you're ready to change.

Or, turn your love for sports into leadership by joining any of our club sports or intramural teams. Each one was organized and launched by students, and they continue to hold the reins.

If you see an opening, take it. We encourage students to act on their initiative, so if your favorite activity does not have a club, start one!
