Student life at AUW is as diverse and vibrant as the students themselves. With a variety of student organizations, athletics, and extra-curricular activities to get involved in, a student’s experience at AUW goes well beyond the classroom. Engage in thought-provoking discussion after a weekly TED Talk screening, learn a new traditional dance, or help organize the AUW Film Fest. While students share their stories and explore new interests—from golf to performing arts to Model United Nations and Student Government—AUW provides the resources, facilities, and expertise needed to enhance each student’s experience.

AUW students have passions and interests that go far beyond the classroom. Students have taken the initiative to start clubs in nearly every category, from music to charity to politics. With such a variety to choose from, you are sure to find your fit. If your hobby is not represented by an existing club, the Office of Student Activities (OSA) will help you create one.
Here is a sample of the clubs and organizations that AUW students have established:
Speak Up Club
Martial Art Club
Public Health Club
Women Across Borders Club
Model United Nations
The Echo (online campus newspaper)
Japanese Circle Club
Youthmappers at AUW
We Squared Club
Sustainable Development Club
Animal Welfare Club
Ice Breaking Club
Culinary Chef Club
English Speaking and Communication Club
The Office of Student Activities also manages the AUW Works Study Program. The AUW Work Study Program provides AUW students the opportunity to develop professional skills and earn wages while they are students on campus. This program also:
- assists students in developing a positive attitude toward work
- teaches students good work habits and time management skills
- enhances students’ sense of responsibility
- provides students with valuable learning experience while doing worthwhile work
- meets the needs of the University in performing day-to-day operations
To be eligible for Work Study, a student must maintain good academic standing and must be a full-time undergraduate student (enrolled in at least three 4-credit courses each semester). Students facing academic actions such as Academic Probation will not be allowed to hold a work study position unless approved by the Director of Student Services.
The AUW Student Government is composed of five class representatives and four executive board members consisting of the President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary.
AUW Student Government (SG) represents and acts on behalf of the AUW student body to build a better community by creating a bridge of collaboration between the University administration and the student body, ensuring transparency and effectiveness of policies, and advocating for student voices.
