The purpose of clubs is to offer students the opportunity to engage in co-curricular activities which facilitate the development of essential life skills such as interpersonal communication, conflict resolution and time management. Clubs provide a vital medium for students to network with other students, faculty, businesses and the community. Students may choose to simply participate within a club by supporting and promoting events, or to tackle a more challenging leadership role by becoming an executive member. Regardless of your level of involvement, clubs help you to feel more connected to the campus community.
How do I join a club?
Want to join a club? Check out the Clubs Directory and see if any of the current clubs interest you. Most clubs will be available on Main Street for Clubs & Campus Expo in early September and January, or you can talk to the Clubs Coordinator who can help connect you to the clubs.
An important notice for students joining Clubs:
Please be aware that while the SAMRU provides Clubs with the option of opening a no-fee internal club banking account, SAMRU’s oversight of these Club accounts is limited to ensuring that access to the funds deposited requires the approval of the Club account signatories (generally the Club Executives).
Further, Clubs are permitted to utilize external bank accounts and other 3rd party organizations for managing Club funds which are not monitored or controlled by SAMRU in any way.
Before you pay any membership fees or other amounts to a Club you should understand how that Club handles its finances and how decisions regarding expenditures are made. If you have any questions or concerns, ask to speak directly to a Club executive member.
