Getting Involved

What’s your thing? At BVU, there’s room to build in any area you choose. Athletics, activism, intramurals, leadership, service, spirituality, or anything in between — you’ll find a home base here. With so many opportunities to plug in, it will be easy to make college some of the best years of your life. Start here and go further than you ever imagined.

Not everything about college should be focused on preparing for a career. A comfortable atmosphere with loads of ways to explore new interests and existing passions is equally important.

Whichever activities you choose, getting involved at BVU will foster a sense of pride and success. Giving your time, your skills, and yourself can be just as rewarding as academic success. These are valuable experiences — experiences that enhance what you take from the classroom — and will cherish for a lifetime. 

Student Organizations

Student organizations reign at BVU. Three out of every four students are involved in at least one. That’s not too surprising when you look at the dozens of organizations available, ranging from the Society of Collegiate Journalists, BVU Marketing Association and Student Senate, to Outdoor Adventure Club, Cheerleading, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Club and African American Student Association. If you’re interested in something that’s not yet a club, create it!

Intramurals and Recreation

Stay active, meet life-long friends, and explore new skills. BVU offers an incredible array of athletic and recreation activities for all students on campus. Borrow a canoe or paddle boat from our Recreation Services house. Compete in dozens of intramural sports all year long. Go on trips with your fellow students — camping, fishing, skiing, and more.
