Nicholls State University is a community of students, faculty, and staff. The touchstones for student success lie in the pursuit of learning, personal growth, and engagement in campus life. Students actively involved in campus life improve their academic performance, develop leadership skills, participate in Colonel traditions and make life-long friends.
Nicholls State is home to many student organizations. They cover a broad range of interests: the arts, music, politics, pre-professional, recreational, religion, sports and social activities, to list a few. There are ample options to explore and something for everyone. By joining an organization, you have opportunities to meet and socialize with students sharing similar interests and to participate in student-led activities. The Department of Student life encourages you to get involved in these organizations to extend learning beyond the classroom, explore new ideas, develop social skills and enrich your personal lives.
