Clubs & Organizations

Get involved!

There are clubs and organizations for every interest. And freshmen and sophomore students have the opportunity for leadership positions much earlier than students who have to compete with college juniors and seniors!

Don’t see a club you want? We encourage you to start you own. Leadership positions in clubs and organizations are open to all students displaying the interest and dedication to make that organization work.
