Student Organizations

Student Programs & Engagement supports over 100 student organizations which provide countless opportunities for student leaders to explore, engage, and be empowered at Bentley.

Starting an Organization

The Association of Bentley Activities (ABA) is a governing organization made up of students who manage the new organization recognition process. The purpose of ABA is to provide Bentley students the opportunity to satisfy a demonstrated need for new organizations. This is accomplished through a student-driven process designed to produce organizations that are prepared, sustainable, and able to contribute to student life at Bentley. If you are interested in starting a new organization, email

Activities Fair

Held at the start of the fall and spring semesters, the Activities Fair showcases our more than 100 student organizations. It is an excellent opportunity for you to meet with representatives of organizations in which you are interested and learn more about getting involved.

Anti-Hazing Campaign

We do not tolerate hazing of any kind. If you believe you or someone you know has been a victim of hazing, you can make a complaint to a resident assistant, academic adviser, professor, staff member or University Police, or through the anonymous anti-hazing tip line.
