Club Genres

Explore. Connect. Collaborate.

All registered student organizations at Rice University identify as one or more of the below club genres:

  • Academic & Honorary
  • Cultural & International
  • Environmental & Sustainability
  • Political
  • Recreational & Sports
  • Religious & Spiritual
  • Service
  • Social Justice
  • Social & Special Interest
  • STEM
  • Visual & Performing Arts

Besides posting club events on OwlNest, clubs can also advertise their events by emailing the different Club Genre Listservs (shown below).

You can search for clubs based on their genre in OwlNest!

On the “Organizations” page, you can select a genre from the “Categories” drop-down menu. All of the clubs that have registered as being affiliated with that genre will then be displayed.
