Get involved and connect with your fellow students. There are many ways to get social, either by meeting a group of students for a "cup of joe" in one of the student lounges on campus, keeping up with the UW-Casper Facebook page or Twitter Feed, or joining a recognized student organization. Consider one of the organizations below; while each is guided by its own objectives, they all exist to serve the students, the community, and the university in various ways.
Round Table Honor Society (RTHS)
Round Table is an honor society that recognizes and encourages scholastic achievement and community standing among University of Wyoming at Casper students. The organization members meet once per month, and participate in one service event and fundraiser each semester, benefiting a chosen cause within the community. You will feel satisfied helping others in need while meeting and enjoying time with other students, and adding this distinctive honor and service to your resume.
Students are eligible for membership based on the following criteria:
- You are a junior or first-semester senior;
- You are seeking a bachelor's degree through UW-Casper;
- You have completed at least 12 hours of upper division (3000-4000 level) credit hours at UW-Casper with a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher, or you are a first-semester UW-Casper student with a previous cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher from an accredited two- or four-year college or university;
- You are enrolled in at least six credit hours of combined UW and CC courses each semester thereafter;
- You maintain a cumulative UW-Casper GPA of 3.3 or higher.
All eligible students will receive a letter of invitation at the beginning of the fall semester. If you have any questions, contact Florence Teulé, Round Table faculty adviser, at (307) 268-2710.
Associated Students of Social Work (ASSW)
ASSW is a student organization comprised of future social workers. Participating in community service and fundraising events, members strive to help local citizens in need. Past activities include raising funds for the fight against breast cancer, collecting diapers for the families of Mercer House, collecting supplies for U.S. troops stationed abroad, cooking and serving breakfast at the Casper Rescue Mission, and raising funds to benefit local agencies. The monthly meetings allow students to gather with their peers in a setting outside of the classroom, which often encourages friendships to form between social work students. A great addition to the resume, ASSW is also an effective networking tool within the industry of social work.
