Student Clubs

Why join a club?

  • Involvement outside of class is a huge part of student learning in college
  • Meet new friends who share your interests and/or identities
  • Learn teamwork and organizational leadership
  • Develop and discover your talents by sharing them with others
  • Gain practical, professional leadership experience
  • Build community and be more connected on campus
  • It's fun!

What do clubs do?

A club will be what its members make it.  Some clubs have large ambitions and some more modest.  Some may be dedicated to a specific cause, viewpoint, or culture, while others may be more social and broad.  Whatever your mission, being part of a recognized club opens up some excellent opportunities, such as:

  • Holding regular meetings on campus
  • Traveling to conferences and taking field trips 
  • Hosting events on campus such as cultural festivals, speakers, films, performing arts, or social gatherings
  • Organizing and inspiring student awareness, activism, philanthropy, and community service

What benefits do clubs receive?

  • Access to campus facilities
  • Free publicity and marketing through Student Life newsletters, posters, website, and social media
  • Access to thousands of dollars in funding dedicated specifically to supporting club activities
  • Support from a dedicated advisor committed to serving clubs
  • Use of Activities and Recreation Center resources for printing, decorating, button-making, banner-painting, etc.
  • Access to vast inventory of Student Life supplies for events and programs

How can I start a new club?

Starting a club at Cascadia is easier than ever! There are two different club levels with slightly different criteria and privileges. Depending upon the level of involvement and types of activities the club would like to do, clubs have the ability to choose their club level. 

  1. Find three-five (3-5) currently enrolled Cascadia students who share your interest in starting the club. Club level one must have a minimum of three (3) members to start, and club level two must have a minimum of five (5) club members. There is no maximum number of members for either club level. 
  2. Find a full-time faculty or staff advisor who is willing to advise your club, travel with your club, and attend club meetings and events. Club advisors are optional for clubs who wish to be a level one club, and clubs who wish to be a level two club must have a full-time faculty or staff member advisor.
  3. Fill out the “Club Application for Recognition” packet and bring it to the Office of Student Life, located on the first floor of the Activities & Recreation Center. At this time you will need to make an appointment to meet with the Student Life Advisor to go over your application for recognition.
  4. A representative from your club must attend the next scheduled Club Council meeting to present the proposed club to the Club Council, a member of student government will reach out to you with an invitation to attend. Club Council members will then review your application and will vote on the approval and recognition of your club. Club Council meetings are scheduled every other Friday, from 9:00 AM -11:00 AM in ARC 121.
