Student Activities & Involvement

Saying that there is a lot going on at DeSales would be an understatement. We have tons of clubs and organizations, events, and activities around campus throughout the year.


From concerts and standup comedy to lectures, athletic events, festivals and dances, and trips to major East Coast cities and abroad, there is always something happening at DeSales. Whether you get involved in intramural sports, a club, or a cause, you won’t have any problems keeping life interesting at DeSales.
Things to Do at DSU
There's never a dull moment for our students here at DeSales University! On campus, there are school-sponsored events, programs in the residence halls, and the amazing activities our students start themselves. On top of all that, we're in a prime location for day trips Philadelphia, New York City, Washington, D.C., and much more!

  • What is happening with clubs, programs, and student activities?

    For the most up-to-date information, we encourage all students to log onto and bookmark ENGAGE for future student engagement and leadership involvement, programs, and updates (login with your MyDSU credentials)

    In addition, we encourage all students to follow our Instagram accounts for future involvement, programs, and updates. 

    We want all student run clubs, organizations, and groups to utilize Zoom to communicate with your members and continue scheduled meetings. If you need help with setting up a Zoom meeting please contact us at the email below.

    If you have specific questions, ideas for online programming, or need assistance please email us at

  • How do student veterans or military students stay connected?

    The Office of Veterans and Military Services is fully functioning remotely. Necessary communications are being conducted with VA offices on your behalf. (Please note, pursuant to S.3503, signed into law by President Trump on March 21, monthly housing allowances will not be affected by the move to online from the "resident" in-person modality until December 21 or until in-person classes resume.)

    An organized Blackboard site has been created to keep student veterans and active military students connected to DeSales and each other. It will also serve to update students of any VA changes.

    To join the organization site, log into Blackboard and click on "Organizations." Search for the site with a key word like "veterans" or "military." When the organization appears, click on the small grey circle at the end of the name and click "Enroll." Finally, click "Submit."

  • Will this FAQ be updated as things change?

    Further information about campus resources will be updated on this site.

    Please remember that our campus resources are available to you. We will continue to update these FAQs on COVID-19 as this situation continues to evolve.

    We will communicate as necessary, via website, email and social media, as we move forward.
