Student Clubs are designed for encouraging students to participate, lead, and learn.
At Virginia International University, student clubs are open to all students irrespective to their program of study, nationalities, and beliefs. Getting involved in extracurricular activities helps you build leadership, professional, and personal skills that will assist you long after you graduate from the University. You will meet new people, share ideas, and explore your potentials.
We are trying to have clubs representing all areas including different nationalities clubs! But, if you don't find what you are looking for, you may start new student clubs with approval from Student Organization Coordinator to meet your needs.
All student clubs are required to maintain documents of events and activities which help in continuation of club activities even after current members graduate and leave. Below are some forms and documents you can use to maintain the required documentation.
You may customize the documents with your club logo, names, and text as per requirement.
