Academic Council

Coordinator:
Lora Zhou -


The Academic Council consists of clubs of an academic nature which allow students to meet other students of their major or interest of study. Academic clubs allow students to continue their learning outside of the classroom and network with professors and professionals, while participating in practical or simply fun events and programs that give students a break from their course load. Many Academic clubs often have guest speakers, aid in the preparation for graduate school or provide opportunities that will allow students to gain a competitive edge on their resume. Academic clubs also allow students to explore fields of study they are potential interested in, helping them to define their educational path.
