Cascadia clubs are open to all currently enrolled students. There are no requirements to join a club, so if you are interested in participating, the best way is to show up to one of their meetings or contact them directly to learn more. The Office of Student Life hosts a quarterly Involvement Fair, where you can meet representatives from each of the active clubs and find out more about the club's activities and events.
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 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
- 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 the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC) resources for printing, decorating, button-making, banner-painting, etc.
- Access to vast inventory of Student Life supplies for events and programs
Current Club Resources and Forms
Important club documents such as quarterly update forms, funding requests, and others can be found at this current club resources and forms website.
How to 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. Clubs have the ability to choose their club level depending upon the extent of involvement and activities they would like to lead.
To apply for recognition as a new club, fill out the Club Application for Recognition form. New clubs are recognized every 2 weeks during the Club Council meeting. Clubs can begin to be recognized at the start of Fall quarter and throughout the academic year.
- Find three to five (3-5) currently enrolled Cascadia students who share your interest in starting the club. Level 1 Clubs must have a minimum of three (3) members to start, and Level 2 Clubs must have a minimum of five (5) club members. There is no maximum number of members for either club level.
- If you wish to be a Level 2 Club, find a Cascadia College employee who is willing to advise your club, travel with your club, and attend club meetings and events. Club Advisors are required for Level 2 Clubs, but are optional for Level 1 Clubs.
- Fill out the Club Application for Recognition form.
- A representative from your club must attend the next scheduled Club Council meeting to present the proposed club to club members at Club Council. The Clubs Coordinator of Cascadia Events & Advocacy Board (EAB) chairs Club Council, so they will email you an invitation to attend the meeting. Club Council members will then review your Club Application for Recognition form and will vote on the approval and recognition of your club.
**Club Council meetings are scheduled every other Friday, from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM in-person.
