We offer opportunities for fun and exciting individual and group activities. Almost all of these events are free and can be worked into your schedule with little effort. Join us as you find your place on campus. We'll show you a fun new way to get involved at Henderson State University.

Student Support Services

Do you need assistance with questions about the campus? Do you need free, one-on-one tutoring in any subject and tips on study strategies? Do you need to explore career options and selection of a major that would be a good fit for you? Learn more about the offerings of the numerous Student Support Services on campus.

Living on campus

When you get to Henderson, you'll see that our residence halls and apartment complexes are much more than a place to crash. Your hall or apartment will be your home away from home. Each of our residence halls and apartment complexes has its own personality, look and feel, and is where students form lifelong friendships and create lasting memories.

Student organizations

No matter what your interests lie, we have the student organizations that will empower you to take them to the next level. Each of the more than 90 organizations at Henderson offers a great way for you to deepen your knowledge, sharpen your skills and make new friends.

Greek life

If you’re looking for opportunities to lead, serve the community, make new friends, or even start building your professional network, nothing quite compares to membership in a sorority or fraternity. You’ll form bonds and make connections that last a lifetime.


Anybody can have a mascot. We think the Reddie Spirit is way cooler and goes deeper than anything that could fit into a big furry suit. It's a spirit born in 1914 when Henderson students decided to rebuild the fire-ravaged campus rather than go elsewhere. If that's not school spirit, nothing is.

Eating on campus

Students who live on campus are required to purchase a meal plan. Henderson offers many options, and one of them is perfect for every student.
