Interest Groups

As membership of this organization is diverse, members' interests travel many different paths.

These small groups are defined and organized by the membership, offering different times and a variety of venues to provide you an opportunity to join other women in camaraderie with similar interests. We encourage you to visit at least one to help you become more active in the University Community!

SPECIAL NOTE: WWSU's priority is the health, safety, and wellbeing  of our entire Shocker community during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Therefore, many of our interest groups are currently on-hiatus.  For specific details contact your Interest Group Chair.Join Us


Book Club

Book ClubTitles cover a wide variety of genres, including fiction, nonfiction, literature, chick-lit, young adult, memoir, historical, graphic novels, selfhelp, and more! Members pick titles about every 8-10 months, and a different book or theme is discussed at each meeting.

This club meets at 7PM, on the first Thursday each month, and held at member's homes.  Snacks and beverages (usually wine) are provided by the hostess or co-hostess.  (Update: These meetings are currently being held via Zoom due to COVID-19.)
