From academic to cultural and social, there are many different clubs on campus, each with its own focus. The Student Activities Board and Center for Equity & Inclusion sponsor a variety of cultural, entertainment and social-issue events during the academic year.
Engage with the Associated Students of UW Tacoma (ASUWT), an elected body that represents student interests on campus and in the community.

Walk across the street and check out a museum or hop aboard the LINK train to the Tacoma Dome for a concert or go the other way to the Theater District. You could always stroll the shops around Pacific Avenue or take a walk to Alma Mater. There you’ll find a cafe and the occasional show or even night market. If you’re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle, consider soaking up the scenery at Point Defiance Park and Point Ruston Waterfront. There’s lots to discover!
