While campus is physically closed, clubs are still active and meeting virtually! Check out our clubs list below for more information on how to get involved. Interested in starting a new club? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to start your own!
All Cascadia clubs are open to all current students. None of them have any requirements to join, so if you are interested in participating, the best way is to show up to one of their meetings. We also have an Involvement Fair within the first few weeks of each quarter, where you can meet representatives from each of the active clubs and find out more about what they do.

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 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 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. 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. Current Club resources and forms.
- Find three to 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.
- 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. The Student Life Advisor maintains a list of potential club advisors willing to be contacted, so you are encouraged to consult with us to find a faculty advisor who will be a good match.
- Fill out the “Club Application for Recognition” packet and email this to us at email@example.com.
- A representative from your club must attend the next scheduled Club Council meeting to present the proposed club to the Club Council. The Clubs Coordinator of Cascadia Events & Advocacy Board (EAB) chairs the Club Council, so they will email you an invitation to appear at the meeting. 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 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM via Zoom.
