Find Your Community

Sam Houston State University offers communities to support your educational, social, and optimal health and wellness experience. Here, you can explore your curiosity with others and find an organization, group, activity or program that appeals to you.

We encourage you to consider engaging with one group related to your future career field and one that helps you identify a group of friends with a common interest. Whether you are looking for friends to work out with, serve in the community, or make connections in your major-our Find Your Community resources are here to support you.

Whatever your interests, Sam Houston State has a place for you!


Our academic communities help empower you to achieve academic success and enhance your overall experience. These programs and student organizations provide you with opportunities to build community with others in your major or desired career field, both inside and outside of the classroom. Engaging with an academic community provides many benefits like study groups, networking opportunities, and much more to help you attain your goals.


To enhance your college experience, SHSU strives to connect you with groups and activities that fit your passion and build community with those that share your interests. Benefits from engaging socially include building lifelong friendships, networking and career opportunities, leadership opportunities, and teambuilding.
