If you were the high school student who organized clothing drives, held an elected office in student government, volunteered at hospitals and food banks, wrote letters to the editor, auditioned for every student drama production or musical, organized a poetry slam or youth voter registration drive… there is no need for you to curb your penchant for involvement and volunteerism once you hit campus.

With more than 175 student groups and clubs from which to choose, you’d be hard pressed not to get involved in something. From politics to faith and identity, and from counseling to sports, Oberlin has an array of clubs eager for new members and new leadership.

And should your specific interests not be represented, take the initiative: Start your own club. Any student is free to organize for any purpose in accordance with the regulations of the college. Choose an advisor and get busy. It’s the Oberlin way.

Refer to the Student Union for details about how to organize a new one.
