Want to have fun and develop your leadership skills and professional contacts at the same time? Then join one or more of the SchoolsвЂ™s student clubs and organizations.
Environmental Science Club is open to all environmental science students who are interested in learning more about important local , national and international environmental issues and careers in environmental science. The Club organizes informational events, encourages networking and career development, and is actively involved in projects to clean up the environment and raise awareness of environmental issues.
Meteorology Club serves as a meeting place for atmospheric sciences students where they can learn and socialize outside the classroom. Anyone with an interest in meteorology can join the club. The club has speakers at monthly meetings who discuss all aspects of meteorology including broadcasting, forecasting and research. In addition, members raise money for the club by working at concession stands at games, and producing and selling a weather calendar. They also go on various field trips, attend conferences, and have a variety of social activities.
