Undergraduate Student Organizations

The Foster School of Business encourages participation in student activities and organizations as an excellent way to experience personal growth, meet new friends, share common interests with other students, faculty and staff, and have some fun outside the classroom. Through participation in these organizations, students can enhance leadership and engage in experiential learning while working to fulfill organizational goals. Foster Registered Student Organization (RSO) officers and members can use the Foster RSO Canvas Site as a resource for frequently asked questions, guidelines for organizations, discussion boards and other useful links to maximize success.
