Clubs and Organizations

Enhance your HPU experience by joining one of many student clubs and organizations

Being a member of a registered student organization (RSO) is an excellent way to meet new people from around the world and enrich your HPU experience. The active RSO's are listed here. If you do not see the perfect match for your strengths and interests, consider creating your own club!


Below is a list of all the registered RSOs from the 2019-2020 academic school year. Check back later in the summer for the complete list for all registered RSOs for the 2019-2020 school year!
