We make sure there's always something fun to do around here--from concerts to clubs and community service events!

We Run the Fun!

We know you'll be working really hard in class, so when the homework is done--or you just need a break--you'll have a whole bunch of options for things to do. 

Because we run New Student Orientation, we'll be one of your first connections on campus. Every quarter we host events such as concerts, comedians, Finals' Week late night study breaks, off-campus excursions, and more.

And if you're looking for opportunities to make an impact, we coordinate community service events such as our annual Day of Service and Save the Day. We're also your hook-up for information on going Greek at Rose-Hulman, and getting involved in any of our 90+ student clubs and organizations. Get the scoop below.

Interested in being a part of the fun on campus? Watch as current Student Activity Board members tell you about all the events at Rose and how you can get involved.
