Student clubs

Involvement in a student organization is just one of many ways for Armstrong students to get involved on campus. In case you are not aware, involved students earn better grades, stay in school, and feel more satisfied with their college experience and graduate on time. Ultimately involved students are more marketable when job searching and applying to grad school because students who actively participate outside of the classroom gain valuable experience in the practical aspects of leadership, communication, risk management and teamwork.

At Armstrong, student organizations have the privilege of reserving space on campus, advertising in the student life calendar and other venues, and maintaining a campus mailbox.
