Each university boasts a large number of 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 opens up many opportunities for you to network, make friends and learn new skills.
Examples of the types of clubs on campuses include a Hip-Hop Club, Student Law Association, Amnesty International and Shinerama. Student groups can also include hobby or interest-based associations, such as clubs related to Harry Potter, photography, chess or juggling. Many of the clubs on campus are created by a group of students who share a similar interest. If you would like to create your own club, please check out our university profiles.
Aboriginal Learners’ Associations
Many universities have an Aboriginal learners’ association, group or club. These clubs are social and cultural communities on campus. They may host feasts, social gatherings and other cultural events. They can also serve as a voice for Aboriginal people on campus. Plus, they can give you leadership opportunities if you want to take on specific roles within the associations, such as president, treasurer or cultural coordinator.
Contact your university’s Aboriginal student services for information on your Aboriginal learners’ association, or seek out the association during orientation week.
