I have a class conflict, can I still join?


If you can't attend our weekly general body meetings, not a problem! We are active throughout the entire year, so there are always opportunities to participate in our club! When we host guest speakers, go on trips, do community outreach, or work on projects, those are usually at different times within the week. We share these times through our social media and emails, as well as at our general body meetings.




When are trips?
