Student Activities

As one alumna said, “Columbians expect to be involved.” You will meet other students like you — students who want to make an impact in their community, continue a familiar passion, or discover a new one. Clubs here are some of the most interesting, rewarding, close-knit, and fun micro-communities you’ll ever be part of.
