The relationship is estimated with using three models of linear multiple regression analyze and two models of logistic regression analyze. The results show statistical significant relationship between participation of students in student organization and their social capital, that is, number of their social ties. At the same time participants from student organization have more social ties both in their faculty and educational program and other faculties and educational programs than other students of the university have.
