Get Involved! Join a Student Organization

Joining a Student Organization is a great way to make friends, network, and find new passions. Some Department-related organizations are the Political Science Student Association, the Alexander Hamilton Society, and Pi Sigma Alpha. 


Student organizations allow you to meet and work with other students, alumni, and company representatives who have knowledge to share.

Professional Experience

Student chapters of professional organizations give students the opportunity to learn more about particular fields, such as law and policy, and to take part in events and activities that put political science concepts into practice.

Social Skill, Friendships and Fun

You’ll discover new people and new places on your journey as a college student who are interested in the same things as you.

Leadership Skills

If you become an officer within the organization, you’ll learn how to balance the challenges of decision-making, delegating and accountability that come with being a successful leader. You’ll also learn about fundraising and financial management, marketing and working in teams – all of which are essential skills to prepare you for your career.
