Student Involvement: Connections Beyond Classes
Your education includes so much more than going to class. At UWA, there are countless opportunities to be a part of something great — from service organizations and Greek Life to clubs and organizations. You can also choose to lead your fellow students, cheer the Tigers along, make music, sing, dance and more. The more involved you become, the richer and more rewarding your college experience will be.
Student Involvement Highlights
The UWA Bands program is dedicated to creating rewarding musical performances at concerts and athletic events through our numerous ensembles. Additionally, every member receives a band scholarship.
