Life as a Catamount is full of opportunities to be involved and make a difference. Student organizations allow students to meet others with similar academic, social, service and spiritual interests. Students who enjoy playing sports but not at the level of our intercollegiate athletics program can find check out our Club Sports program or Intramurals to see where they can get involved. Students can practice leadership skills and work toward professional goals by joining one of our media groups, professional organizations, or by becoming a member of the Student Government Association. With all there is to do on campus, we encourage students to get involved and see where it leads them!

Clubs and Organizations Reaching Excellence or C.O.R.E provides support and resources to students for the creation and operational success of RSOs. Led by the Director of CORE within the Student Government Association, CORE assists with and approves (with the consent of DCA) recognition requests, provides training on operational topics (organization and event management, fundraising, etc.), supports RSOs with the Supplemental Funding process, oversees the Club Hub (in conjunction with DCA), and recommends and advocates for new policies that affect RSOs.
Students are encouraged to contact the Director of CORE (sgaCORE@wcu.edu) for information and support of their existing or proposed RSOs.
