At SAS, we don’t offer a big selection of clubs to join. Our students do.
There’s a wide variety of clubs at SAS – over 100 at last count. And the people responsible for them are the students themselves. Students create the club, write the mission, develop goals, promote membership, lead meetings, and organize events. And they must report their successes and challenges to even more students – the Student Council – to assure they retain their club's charter for the following year.
The result is a fun, diverse, highly-active club scene with opportunities such as service clubs that bring sports to the children of migrant workers in China; special interest clubs where bonding occurs over watching films, reading Japanese Manga, or making origamis; and scholarly-minded clubs such as math or poetry clubs. Clubs are also responsible for some of SAS’ strongest traditions, like Relay for Life, an annual 24-hour walk-a-thon that supports the American Cancer Society.
Whatever students are passionate about, there’s likely a club to serve it. And if not? Then it might be time to create a proposal to start that 101st club…
