Student Clubs and Organizations
JAVĿ¼ students are engaged! All undergraduate students are invited and encouraged to participate in activities, join and lead clubs, and take an active part in the vibrant campus community.
Our growing directory of over 40 clubs and organizations, is an integral piece of the student experience. Clubs give students a space to connect with other students around mutual interests, challenge themselves to try something new, develop leadership skills, and build on their academic experience in meaningful ways.
