About Southern Utah University

Student Life

Everything you could want from college and more!

There’s a lot more than college classes going on at Southern Utah University! From the moment you arrive on campus, you’ll feel you’re somewhere special, a place that is alive with possibilities. The opportunities start with our 15 exciting NCAA Division 1 sports teams and the Thunderbird nation that supports them. There’s also a full schedule of intramural sports, and each year more than 3,000 students take part in the fun. If it’s campus clubs you’re looking for, there are 160+ different organizations at SUU including everything from Break Dance Club and Rhapsody in Red to our four Greek organizations. There’s truly something for every interest, including service opportunities. In 2012, President Barak Obama recognized SUU students for their outstanding service when the University earned the Distinction of Excellence Award. 

There’s a lot to get excited about at Southern Utah University. We look forward to you joining us on our Cedar City, Utah, campus.
