Student Organizations and Fraternity/Sorority Life
Getting involved with a student organization or fraternity or sorority is a great way to explore and develop your identity and make lasting connections and memories. For a full list of all USD-sponsored student organizations, including Fraternity and Sorority Life, visit Torero Orgs. If you do not see a club that interests you, you may start your own club.
USD is home to various centers such as the United Front Multicultural Center, the Women's Center, the Center for Student Success and the Student Leadership, Involvement and Changemaking area.

There are also multiple health and wellness centers on campus such as the Counseling Center, the Mission Fitness Center, the Student Health Center and Center for Health and Wellness Promotion.

Torero Program Board
Torero Program Board (TPB), including Street Team, is a great way to get involved on campus by supporting events throughout the year like athletic tailgates, concerts, speakers, cultural events and much more. TPB works collaboratively with groups and organizations across campus to put on events for all Toreros to enjoy.
The Alcalá Bazaar is USD's involvement fair that is held in the first two weeks of each semester. This event provides an opportunity for clubs, organizations, and departments to share their information with students who might be interested in getting involved. Come on out and see what the excitement is all about.
Residence Hall Programs and Learning Communities
The Residence Halls are not just places to live, they are vibrant communities for you to interact with people from all walks of life. The Residence Hall Learning Communities and the Residence Hall Association (RHA) strive to develop areas that will allow all Toreros to come together and interact.
USD has spaces for students to study, socialize or just relax like lounge spaces in the Student Life Pavilion or the residence halls. Commuter and graduate students also have access to the Commuter Student Commons and the Graduate Student Commons to interact with other students who share similar experiences at USD.
