About Student Clubs
Student clubs encourage students to participate, lead, and learn. At VIU, student clubs are open to all students irrespective of their program of study, nationalities, or beliefs. Getting involved in extracurricular activities helps you build leadership, professional, and personal skills that will assist you long after you graduate. You will meet new people, share ideas, and explore your potential.
The Office of Student Affairs strives to have clubs representing students’ nationalities from all areas and regions, as well as a broad range of interests. If you don't find what you are looking for, we encourage you to start new student club!
