Join a Club

Joining a student organization can help you get the most out of your college experience. You'll make professional contacts, meet new friends, learn more about your profession and hone your leadership, team-building, decision-making, communication and problem-solving skills.

Each organization has a staff or faculty advisor and student membership of 10 or more students. The Student Government Association provides financial support to each club through student activity fees.
