As part of the Division of Student Affairs, the Office of Student Engagement and Leadership exists to support students with opportunities for creating a vibrant and inclusive community that supports meaningful engagement and leadership throughout their student experience. Registered Student Organizations (RSOs), better known as clubs, club sports, associations or organizations, are an opportunity for students at Amherst to foster communities formed around shared identity and interests.

The Hub

RSOs are open to all students and a browsable list of every organization is available on The Hub. New organizations are approved every semester.
