One thing I really didn't cover in my post You're here! Now what is there to do? were clubs and organizations.

Here is a few of the clubs and organizations on campus:

These students work very closely with the Coordinator of Student Activities Gina Garera. They are responsible for planning and promoting events on campus like Movie Night on the Library lawn, Guest Speakers, Welcome Week, various comedians, Spring and Fall Fling, and ThinkFast!.
