Student Organizations

There are a number of different organizations in which textile students can get involved. Many of these organizations sponsor student activities throughout the year. These activities help students to meet other students, professors and make industry contacts. Through all social and leadership activities, students learn about themselves, others and the world around them. These activities also provide the opportunity for excitement and fun.
