An Intro to Getting Involved On Campus

There are many ways students can get involved on campus.

One student organization is called Student Party, which is MIAD’s equivalent of Student Government. It meets weekly on Wednesdays during the Common Hour (11 a.m.  – 12:30 p.m.) in Room 399A, and helps with MIAD traditions like the annual AIDS Walk Wisconsin, Blood Drives, the MIAD Halloween Party, the annual Talent Show and Health Heelers.

There also are several active student groups on campus:

Active Minds
Asian Creative Union (ACU)
American Society of Interior Designers (ASID)
Anime Club
Disability Rights, Education, Activism and Mentoring (DREAM)
Drama Club
Dungeons & Dragons
Fibers Club
Film Club
Genders and Sexualities Alliance (GSA)
Graphic Novel Book Club
Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA)
ISO (Photography)
Magic: The Gathering
MIAD Print Club
Rolling Rats (Skateboarding, etc.)
Super Secret Cartoon Club
Video Game Club

If a student is interested in creating a student group that doesn’t currently exist, they should contact Student Party (

Another organization on campus, Alpha Lambda Delta (ALD), is an honor society open to freshmen students who met or exceeded a 3.5 GPA in their first semester at MIAD. ALD fosters academic achievement and learning through thought, design and expression, and believes every person can lead, learn and design with a purpose greater than self to change the world. Should your student become a member of this prestigious honors society, they will be provided the opportunity to compete for scholarships and fellowships awarded by National Alpha Lambda Delta.
