Each university boasts many clubs that you can join. During orientation week, your university may hold a “clubs day” or “clubs week” to showcase its variety of clubs to you. Consider joining a club. It offers many opportunities for you to network, make friends and learn new skills.
Examples of the types of clubs on campuses include:
- Amnesty International
- chess club
- Harry Potter club
- hip-hop club
- photography club
- student law association
Many of the clubs on campus are created by a group of students who share a similar interest.
Indigenous Students Associations
Many universities have an Indigenous student association, group or club. These clubs are social and cultural communities on campus. They may host feasts, social gatherings and other cultural events, and serve as a voice for Indigenous people on campus. In addition, they may offer leadership opportunities if you want to take on specific roles within the associations, such as president, treasurer or cultural coordinator.
Contact your university’s Indigenous student services for information about your Indigenous students’ association or seek out the association during orientation week.
