Student Groups

Why Student Leadership?

Student life at Moody includes much more than merely academic coursework and ministry training opportunities. Moody offers a wide range of exciting ways for students to get involved on campus and in the community. We encourage you to make the most out of your time here at Moody by getting involved with student groups as soon as you arrive.

Moody student groups and organizations exist to edify and mature our student body, honing students' gifts and broadening their knowledge of the world. Each of Moody's student groups has a specific focus and also helps to give students an opportunity to learn about issues such as leadership, cross-cultural understanding, mentoring, outreach, media, and personal wellness.

The Student Programs Office advises student groups, organizations, and class councils in the areas of leadership, budgeting, planning, and the facilitation of campus-wide events. For more information, please contact Student Programs or click here to view the Student Group Handbook.

Participate in any of our student activities and organizations to enhance your resume, learn valuable leadership and organizational management skills, make new friends, and enjoy a richer college experience.

If a student activity or organization you’re interested in doesn’t exist, you can set up a meeting with our Associate Dean of Student Programs!

The Student Group Fair is a great way to learn about all the different student organizations available at Moody that interest you. It is held at the beginning of each semester.
