clubs And organizations

The college experience shouldn't be limited to classes and homework; join one of the Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs' many student organizations and learn how to network, build leadership skills, and form relationships that can last a lifetime.

Each of our student clubs has its own Facebook page. We encourage you to "like" the page, and use it to sign up, engage, and maintain connections with other members.
