There are many different opportunities for students to meet other students with similar interests at PUC, and picking a club to join is just one of those ways. There are a lot of clubs here on campus, so the toughest part can come to trying to pick one!
The diversity here at PUC can be seen very clearly when going through the list of options you have. The best place to start is by looking at what department interests you. Clubs range from cultural to academic and includes civic as well.
- Academic clubs give you the ability to network among other people in your major, or another field you’re interested in. There are options ranging from Biology to Pre-Law and History!
- Civic clubs work to help people. Clubs like REVO and Thaumatrope help students become more active in making differences in the lives of those on our campus or within the community.
- Cultural clubs allow you to meet people with similar ancestry as you or help you become familiar with someone else’s. Clubs like Black Student Union, the Student Organization of Latinos (SOL), and the Hawaiian Club all use their clubs to promote a bigger sense of community here on campus.
There are also special interest clubs. The Debate Club or the Jiu Jitsu Club can always prove to be full of energy and something to do. If the stress of picking just one club is getting to you, the Angwin Flyers Club can take you away!
You can see a full list of this year’s clubs at puc.edu/clubs. If there’s something you’re interested in but there isn’t already a club formed around it, just stop by the Student Services office to get a petition to organize a new club to get started. Grab 10 friends, get a faculty sponsor, and you’re well on your way to having fun!
