Student Organizations

Thaddeus Stevens College strongly supports student organizations that contribute meaningful experiences for students to enhance their cultural, social, physical, and spiritual development.

Student organizations are open to all members of the student body and are designed to encourage the participation of all interested students without requirements that might exclude any member of the student body.

The Student Government Association reviews and recommends clubs and organizations. Students interested in starting a new club or organization work with the Vice President for Student Services to begin the process.
