Clubs & Organizations

Get Connected and Make a Difference!

One of the most fulfilling ways to experience college life is to get involved, take risks and participate in the various leadership opportunities on campus. These opportunities are promoted through the extra- and co-curricular programs such as student clubs and organizations, student senate, intercollegiate athletics, social programs, community service programs and leadership experiences.

If you do not see a club that interests you at this time, feel free to contact the Student Life office to find out how to start a new one! We are located in the Student & Enrollment Services Center. Call 856-691-8600 x1454 for information or visit our office.
