Student clubs exist to give participants opportunities to develop interests and skills in many different activities. Clubs increase conviviality among students and a sense of pride in AUCA. Participation in club activities can also sharpen a student’s knowledge and experience in a particular area of expertise. Active involvement demonstrates to prospective employers’ commitment to extra-curricular responsibilities.
Clubs are recognized and registered through the Student Life Office. In order to register a new club, students must get an application form from Student Life Officer and return the completed form with the electronic version. A club can be started by a student, faculty, or staff member. Clubs may request money from the Student Senate budget.
How to Start a New Club?
In order to register a new club, you need to come and see the Student Life Officer or write an e-mail, requesting an application form for clubs. She/He will send you an application form for clubs. In this form, you need to answer the following questions and send them to the e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
