Student clubs and organizations provide students an opportunity to combine various aspects of their academic and/or vocational learning into personal action. Through participation in a student club or organization, students apply the skills and responsibilities of leadership and become involved in the community. Clubs are a great way to meet other students with similar interests and have fun while developing lifelong skills.
