Clubs & Organizations
Bringing students together to make a lively campus community
Many organizations have a great impact on society and had their roots in a student club or organization.
Current student organizations and clubs reflect the broad range of interests of Prescott College students, from the environment and social justice to the arts, to fire dancing and contra dancing, to Capoeira and ultimate frisbee.
Student Organizations are ongoing projects that have grown from various independent studies and senior projects into micro-businesses. Most of these organizations operate with the support of Prescott College under the management of current students and graduates. Each student organization is offered space on campus to meet and work.
Prescott College encourages students to form clubs and to join clubs as part of their academic and personal journey at the College.
Prescott College encourages students to submit event announcements to the College’s online, moderated Calendar of Events. Let the Advancement Office know about senior projects, community service, internships, publications, and scholarships. All postings to campus bulletin boards must be stamped for approval by the Library before posting.
