Clubs & Organizations

Run by Students, for Students

The Student Government Association (SGA) is an independent student-run non-profit organization that organizes and oversees student-run clubs and organizations. Independent from the University’s administration, the students elected to the SGA author and enforce the rules that determine how clubs should function and how they’re funded.

Each individual club is proposed by, created by, and managed by students. Whether you’re looking to find a group of people who share your interests, or you’re looking to jump into a leadership position, Montclair State’s SGA clubs and organizations can find the right fit for you.

Some examples of the types of clubs overseen by SGA:

  • Fraternities and Sororities
  • Shared Hobby Clubs
  • Academic Clubs
  • Religious Clubs
  • Social Activism and Political Clubs
  • Mutual Support and Community-building Clubs
  • Honors Societies
  • Community Service Clubs

The SGA even organizes local chapters of national organizations, like the NAACP, and international organizations, like the Golden Key International Honour Society.

Here’s a selection of clubs and organizations run by Montclair State University students:

The Montclarion

Montclair State’s student-run newspaper, The Montclarion, gives students interested in journalism real-world practical experience that they can carry forward after graduation. Students who work on the newspaper learn a variety of skills, from research and editing to photography, layout and design – and with The Montclarion’s transition to a hybrid print/online format students will learn the web-writing skills necessary to thrive in the 21st century journalism landscape.

The Montclarion is its own independent non-profit organization – not run by the SGA or the University administration – ensuring that it has as much editorial control over its content as possible.

Latin American Student Organizations (LASO)

As Latinos, we have flavor — we have that extra movement within our hips that can move people. LASO aims to add that extra hip movement at Montclair State by sharing our music, food, dance, stories and intellect with people on campus who might not know about our culture; we also aim to ignite that flavor among Latino students who are looking for a home. We are a FAMILY!

MSU Players

Montclair State University’s student-run theatre organization. MSU Players was founded in 1937 to give Montclair State University students the opportunity to create theater. Players does numerous productions every year, such as dramas, comedies, one-acts, cabaret nights and musicals. In the early 1970’s, Players became a Class One Organization of the SGA, Inc. which it remains to this day. We welcome students of all ages, of all majors, of every talent level! No auditions are required to be a member of Players!

Future Educators Association (FEA)

The Future Educators Association provides students the tools and resources to become effective, successful educators. Our focus is on the personal and professional development of students across campus, encouraging them to positively interact with our community, discover their pedagogies and ideologies, as well as to allow for seamless growth and success for one’s future.
