As the hub of student involvement, the Union houses several campus organizations that provide services and programs for the K-State student body. As a part of these organizations, students have the opportunity to lead, plan events, develop culture, and even find money for college. It’s all here.
Center for Student Involvement
The Office of Student Activities and Services and the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life merged to form the Center for Student Involvement (CSI) in Fall 2017. CSI is the K-State student’s connection to campus involvement. It provides support and resources to 475+ registered student organizations that expose students to social, cultural, recreational and governance programs, as well as opportunities for scholarship, leadership and service. The organizations CSI supports include:
- Student Governing Association (SGA)
- 25 Interfraternity Council fraternities
- 13 Panhellenic sororities
- Sports clubs
- General university organizations
- Competition teams
- Academic organizations
- Religious organizations
- Special interest organizations
- Community organizations
- Multicultural organizations
CSI is also home to OrgSync, an online portal designed to help students connect to organizations, communicate with other members, and explore their community. Find more detailed on the transition and creation of the Center for Student Involvement here.

The Multicultural Student Organization (MSO) office provides a space for student organizations committed to promoting diversity. As a member of the K-State Office of Diversity, the MSO office works with several of K-State’s multicultural student organizations to aid in leadership development for students of minority groups, and to coordinate multicultural programs on campus.

The Center, part of the Non-Traditional & Veteran Student Services office, provides a physical space for veteran and military-affiliated students to study and connect with other students with similar experiences.
