You have made a fantastic choice to get involved on campus! Johns Hopkins has nearly 400 student-run organizations, each one providing a unique laboratory for learning for those involved. Registered Student Organizations (RSO) provide opportunities for leadership development, building lifelong friendships, sharpening interpersonal skills, and improving organization.

Whether it is student government, sports clubs, theater groups, a fraternity or sorority, programming board, traditions committee, or simply a group focused on your favorite hobby, your involvement in a Johns Hopkins student organization will:

  • Strengthen your ties to this great university
  • Help you interact with faculty and staff, network with other students, and learn how to navigate getting things done at Homewood
  • Teach commitment and accountability to others, and you will learn to work effectively with people of different leadership styles

The staff of Leadership Engagement & Experiential Development looks forward to supporting your involvement at Johns Hopkins. The office provides services for student groups such as campus space reservations, managing on-campus financial accounts, and mail and package reception. Leadership Engagement & Experiential Development staff are also available to advise student groups with on-campus programming and events and may help student groups arrange event support (i.e. grounds, electric shop, etc) as well through our office. Finally, student groups are eligible to apply for various campus grant programs to support organization activities. Additionally, the office supports large-scale campus traditions such as Lighting of the Quads as well as advising and supporting numerous student-led programming boards that plan weekly, monthly, and seasonal student-centered events across campus throughout the year ranging from trivia and paint nights to multi-day festivals such as Hoptoberfest and Spring Fair.

Since the founding of the first fraternity on-campus, Beta Theta Pi, in 1877 and the Glee Club in 1884, students have a long tradition of involvement at Homewood. Go forth and make your mark at Johns Hopkins!
