At Farmington, you’ll get involved in whatever student club or organization matches your interests. And we have loads to choose from. And if you don’t see the particular student organization you’re interested in, then do what lots of UMF students have done — take the bull by the horns and create your own club! In fact, that’s how most of our student organizations came to be.

We’ve got singing clubs, theater clubs, sports clubs, dance clubs and improv comedy clubs; volunteer and community service organizations; student government; social and events programming; political clubs; activist clubs; literary clubs and science clubs; plus a student-run newspaper, student-run radio station and more.
