Campus Clubs

Campus life at Eastern Wyoming College supports a dynamic community of various people with different values, from different cultures, and lifestyles, and possessing different attitudes. All members of this community are encouraged to respect the individuality and life choices of the community members. We can learn from those around us as we encourage, respect, and tolerate our differences. Each person plays an important role in our residence halls and should be allowed to be a positive influence on others and Eastern Wyoming College.

To that end, there are several student organizations on campus and, as interest increases, new organizations may be formed. 

Student extracurricular involvement develops leadership, cooperative, and service skills, rounds out one’s education, and provides a much-needed constructive diversion from academic stresses. Every student is urged to become an active member of the student body. Faculty and staff advisors are assigned to each college-sponsored club or activity.

Student Organizations
