Meet like-minded fellow Lumberjacks

Human services is a field of study for those with the calling to pursue careers that will enhance a specific client population’s ability to experience life more completely and successfully. It’s so important, particularly for students in human services areas, to spend time participating in student organizations that foster appreciation for the rich diversity of the human condition.

In addition to our human services-focused groups, SFA is home to more than 200 student clubs and organizations, including clubs for students interested in education and education studies. For more information about education-related groups, you can contact your faculty advisor or view SFA clubs and organizations to find the best fit for your interests.
