Clubs & Organizations
Student organizations provide opportunities for students to broaden their experiences, develop leadership abilities, provide a sense of responsibility, and give service to the College and community.
Active Minds chapters are a powerful force in the mental health movement. Student-led chapters work to increase mental health awareness on campus, raise funds for critical mental health education and resources through the Active Minds national office, promote positive mental health, educate their peers about the signs and symptoms of mental health disorders, and encourage students to reach out for help when needed. Chapters play an important role in referring students to resources and starting conversations about this important topic. Many members of Active Minds chapters are students with an interest in mental health, such as psychology, nursing, pre-med, and social work students. Some students are living with mental health issues including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, or an eating disorder. Others are friends or family of people who live with an issue or are survivors of a friend or family member’s suicide. Active Minds chapters are open to any enrolled student.

Delta Psi Omega
Delta Psi Omega National Theatre Honor Society, Alpha Psi Omega's "Sister Society," was founded in 1929 as the official junior-college division of Alpha Psi Omega. Both societies are governed by the same National Officers, yet have a separate coat-of-arms and induction ceremony. Delta Psi Omega is founded at two-year institutions (junior colleges/community colleges).
Opp and Alpha Psi Omega were also instrumental in helping to organize the Thespian Society, now known as the International Thespian Society, the theatre honor society for high school students (also founded in 1929). With an original grant of $500, the society was able to help organize I.T.S. and help publish the first issues of the I.T.S. magazine. The International Thespian Society has since been assimilated into the Educational Theatre Association, but the influences can be seen in the similarities of both organizations' colors and induction ceremonies.
Members are most commonly referred to as "APOs". However, due to some confusion with members of the national service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega, some campuses refer to their members as "Alpha Psis" or "AYOs". Members of Delta Psi Omega are commonly known as "DPOs".
As was common practice in naming honor societies during that time, at the founding, Alpha Psi Omega was called "Alpha Psi Omega National Honorary Dramatic Fraternity" and used theatre-related terminology to refer to the honor society's officers and workings.
