Student Life

Student Life

Lead. Climb. Explore. Dance. Volunteer. This is the place to learn by doing. Because what happens outside the classroom at Texas Woman’s University can be just as important as what happens inside it.

Step outside your comfort zone and discover a talent you never knew you had or a passion you might have overlooked. This is the time to be a Pioneer. Try something new and, in the process, be transformed.

Through our activities and organizations; leadership opportunities and community service; and, a dedicated network of support services, you’ll grow to embrace diversity and learn to engage the world around you.

Student Life at TWU

Our students are bold, community-driven intellectuals able to meet the challenges we set before them. Life here doesn’t stand still. Pioneers take advantage of every opportunity to build an active and dynamic student body at all three campus locations.

  • The Denton Campus is a bustling college campus in a lively college town. It’s the main campus, if you will, with opportunities to go Greek, serve in student government, volunteer for a good cause and more.
  • The Dallas Center sits in the heart of the Southwestern Medical District surrounded by four hospitals. It’s where we’ll connect you with practitioners in your field and prepare you to become a better health care professional yourself.
  • The Houston Center is a state-of-the-art, 10-story, 202,000 square-foot “campus in one building.” It’s where you’ll shape your leadership style, build your professional connections, and grow as a health care professional.

Message from the Vice President for Student Life concerning propaganda posters on the TWU campus

Last night the TWU Denton campus was covered with posters that contained inflammatory white supremacist rhetoric and propaganda. A group of individuals who identify as members of the National Texas Bloc placed posters around the university including the free speech area.  This group identifies themselves as a national socialist movement.  I want to assure you that our campus leadership, the Department of Public Safety, and various support services are aware of and responding to the situation. DPS has taken swift action to remove all materials outside of the free speech area and will continue to dismantle any remaining propaganda that is found. Full Story

Student Activities

Movies, concerts, guest speakers, and other events like Market Tuesday and “TWU’s Got Talent” are the norm for a university with more than 125 sanctioned student organizations. These groups represent departments, Greek councils, identity-based cultural groups, and more.
