Student organizations

Central State University offers a complete educational, cultural, and social experience. Whatever your interests, you will find a group, organization, activity, or program that will appeal to you. We have many extracurricular activities and leadership opportunities that inspire students with out-of-class learning opportunities to enhance their college experiences.
