Registered student organizations

Columbia College is an active campus, where learning isn't confined to classrooms, and leadership and service aren't just empty buzzwords. From the Psychology Club to the Elysium Players, Columbia College is a place where people get involved.

Studies show that for the average student, more than 80 percent of his or her college life will be spent outside the classroom, which means the majority of your time as a college student might be engaged in anything from sports to studying, working to volunteering, sleeping or just hanging out. How you decide to spend your time is entirely up to you, but to get the full "college experience," we strongly recommend you consider participating in one of our existing student organizations — or even create your own.

During the school year, Columbia College has more than 50 active and operating student organizations. Combined, these groups offer activities encompassing a wide variety of topics from community service and politics to religion, music and multiculturalism. The end result is a community in which there always is something going on, and where one can easily find others with whom to discuss shared ideas, ideals and goals.
