Club Week 2022

Club Week 2022

While we all miss the nachos, strawberry-filled croissants, Boba, homemade soaps and the many, many other delicious treats we simply can’t host a large-scale event on campus. However, that doesn’t mean you can get involved with the clubs. So, we’ve gone digital and expanded our club day into a week. Our incredible students are often involved in numerous clubs so we grouped the clubs in meaningful categories so you hopefully have time to chat with numerous club leaders to find the right fit for you.  

If you are interested in becoming a club leader, officer transitions occur in January annual, unless national bylaws require an alternate date. So get involved now, learn the ropes and then apply for a leadership position within your club.
