Student Organizations

Join a Club

Whatever your interests are now, or whatever new ones you discover once on campus, our political science clubs offer a great way to connect with your peers and build the connections and expertise to make the most of your time at CSU.


Student Clubs

Model UN Club

Model UN is a club where students roleplay as various states or people in a committee. These committees can range from climate change discussions to a simulation of 15th-century politics and involve debate, communication, and writing skills.  The club meets every Monday 6 - 7 p.m. in Stadium Room 1216.

To learn more about the Model Un Club, visit their main website or email the club president

Poli Sci Fun Club

The Poli Sci Fun Club meets twice a month for political discussions, networking, food, and of course, fun. On the first Wednesday of every month, the club meets at 6:30pm in Stadium room 1215 to explore and discuss different political topics. The club is non-partisan, so all opinions are welcomed, and discussions are to remain respectful. On the third Thursday of the month, the club meets casually as an opportunity for students to get to know each other and talk. Pizza is served at both meetings.

For more information about the club, email or follow the club on Instagram and Twitter.

Pre-Law Club

CSU’s pre-law club provides students with numerous opportunities to educate themselves about law schools and the legal profession. The club meets every other Thursday 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the Natural Resources building, Room 140.

To get on the mailing list or learn more, contact the pre-law club president on RamLink or via email.

Pi Sigma Alpha

The Department of Political Science hosts the Delta Phi chapter, founded in 1966, of Pi Sigma Alpha, the national political science honor society. Membership in an honor society is an excellent way to stand out to future employers or graduate/law programs and comes with several benefits.

To qualify for membership in the Delta Phi chapter at CSU, a student must meet the following standards:

  1. A student must have completed 10 credit hours in political science, including one upper-level class. All courses are taken in the department, and all political science transfer classes satisfy the 10-credit minimum requirement. Courses in which students are currently enrolled (Spring 2022) do not count toward meeting the requirement.
  2. A student must have a minimum grade point average of 3.00 or higher in their political science courses. No rounding up of grade point averages is allowed.
  3. A student must have a ranking in the top third of their class (junior or senior).

The Delta Phi chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha not only provides students a platform to be recognized but also a place for students to engage with peers who share a passion for politics. Leadership opportunities are available. Chapters may develop programs around topics of interest both in the department and within the broader college community.

The national office of Pi Sigma Alpha offers chapter activity grants each fall for up to $2000. The annual student research conference in Washington provides several scholarships and best paper prizes, and a national undergraduate journal is published twice a year. Pi Sigma Alpha members may wear an honor cord or medallion to signify their membership in the society.

Pi Sigma Alpha was founded in 1920 on the campus of the University of Texas, Austin. There are chapters on 845 college campuses in the United States, and thousands of students are initiated each year.
