Clubs & Organizations
Joining a student club opens the door to building new friendships, enhancing your academic life, and exploring career opportunities. As an active member of a student organization, you will learn important leadership and management skills as you participate in a variety of programs. This may include planning campus-wide political, academic, cultural, arts, or social events, as well as working on various aspects of student publications, competing in athletic competitions or debate tournaments, attending leadership seminars, and organizing community service projects.
