  • About Entertainment and Literature Clubs

    Academic goals cannot be achieved without the development of the student’s total personality. Since the majority of a student’s time is spent outside of the classroom, extracurricular and co-curricular activities serve as valuable partners with academics in the enhancement of the total college experience. Clubs and organizations provide opportunities for students to meet and interact with others who share their interests. They also provide opportunities for ­students to explore new interests.
