Clubs & Organizations

No matter what your specific interests are, you can find a way to pursue them at Principia College. Principia students have a long-standing tradition of taking responsibility for their own education and giving generously of their time and talents to the community. That's part of the reason you’ll find student-run clubs on campus ranging from environmental awareness to stand-up comedy and from fencing to philosophy. It’s also the reason you’ll find so many people having so much fun!    

After all, Principia College’s character education in the liberal arts setting includes a lot more than just academics. There’s not an academic class on character education. The lessons learned come from the entire Principia College experience—from intellectual, social, physical, moral, and spiritual pursuits. Here are some ways you can pursue your interests, make a contribution to the community, and round out your education beyond the classroom:
