One of the many ways that the Office of Student Affairs at the Regional Campuses promotes student involvement is through clubs and organizations. Clubs and organizations exist as a means for building leadership skills, as well as promote community outreach and recreation. Official clubs and organizations are funded and governed by the respective Student Government Association at each Regional Campus.

Each Regional Campus has its own chapter of the Golden Key International Honour Society to recognize exceptional academic accomplishments of students. Students maintaining a 3.75 or higher GPA will be eligible for membership. Golden Key offers various benefits for its members, such as professional development opportunities, scholarships, community service projects, and more.

Peer Study Groups at the Regional Campuses promote a community of learning among students. They support specific learning needs and can be beneficial to students who need help in their classes. Peer Study Groups are chartered through the Office of Student Affairs at the Regional Campuses as official organizations with the university.
Approved groups may schedule meetings at the Regional Campus facility through the Coordinator of Student Affairs, and they are granted access to a maximum of $50 per year for meeting expenses (including snacks). To request use of these funds, contact a Student Affairs staff person.
Individuals interested in chartering a Peer Study Group are required to complete and submit a Chartering Packet. Please click on the link below for the Chartering Packet pertaining to your Regional Campus:
