Student Organizations

RWJMS students engage in multiple interests through the many student-run organizations enriching campus life. The student leaders of these organizations meet regularly with the Deans at Student Leader Meetings to discuss issues important to the entire student body. Students are encouraged to create their own student-run organizations if their interests are not represented. See the list of organizations exemplifying the diverse opportunities currently available to students at RWJMS.
