Social Opportunities

Walla Walla University places an emphasis on providing on-campus social opportunities consistent with its Christian mission.

ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF WALLA WALLA UNIVERSITY. All WWU faculty and regularly enrolled undergraduate students are members of the ASWWU. ASWWU elected officers are responsible for a wide range of social and religious activity planning, and for representing student needs and concerns to WWU administrators. The ASWWU is also responsible for production of the Mask student directory, The Collegian weekly student newspaper, and the Mountain Ash yearbook. Student editors of these publications are appointed by the ASWWU Media Board. The ASWWU is co-sponsored by the Vice-President for Student Life and the Student Activities Director.

CAMPUS CLUBS. Students of varying interests and social tastes support a variety of campus clubs and interest groups. Most academic departments sponsor organizations designed to foster academic interaction in more informal settings. Other campus clubs include: Aleph Gimel Ain (AGA), residence hall women; Omicron Pi Sigma (OPS), residence hall men; and Village Club.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES. A variety of activities are planned through the Student Activities office to meet the social needs of the students. Concerts, weekend activities, and mid-week stress relief events enable students to socialize outside the classroom.

REGIONAL OPPORTUNITIES. In addition to on-campus social activities, WWU students take advantage of a variety of regional cultural opportunities. These include performances by the Walla Walla Symphony, art exhibits, lectures by leading political and entertainment personalities, and live theatrical productions.
