There are three active student organizations for Nutrition Science majors. The organizations sponsor presentations, workshops, and activities focused on Nutrition Science issues.

Nutrition Society is an association of students interested in Nutrition Science. Club meetings feature speakers highlighting topics and professions in nutrition, fitness, overall health, and the food industry.
