Clubs and Organizations

Meeting new people and being exposed to new ideas is an important part of the collegiate experience. Students who are involved in extracurricular activities like university clubs, sports, creative productions and internships report being more satisfied with their university experiences. And it’s not surprising. These outlets provide additional arenas for learning and networking. Moreover, they can serve as a place where like-minded people can come together and students can build professional skills. The political science department has several clubs for students to join and explore something new.
