Student Life & Well-Being

Student clubs are an integral part of the Ostrow community. We have a diverse group of student-led clubs consisting of cultural, religious, study/academic, lifestyle and hobby clubs. If you don’t see a club here that meets your needs and interests – you are encouraged to reach to the Office of Student Life and Well-Being to start one.
