Student Clubs on campus sponsor events almost weekly. Whether it's an ASB meeting on Friday, a game of basketball with the Outdoor Activities Club on Wednesday, or Game Night each term, there is usually something to do with your fellow students.
But don't just sit back and wait for a club to entertain you - join! All clubs are open to any student interested in their goals and activities. Most meet weekly and are always looking for new members.
And if there isn't a club that interests you - start a new one! Student Life can help you get going with suggestions and applications. All you need is some friends who share your interest, a faculty or staff member who is willing to advise, and a short constitution.
The Associated Student Body of Cogswell College is the general student membership organization. ASB strives to be the link of communication between the faculty and the students of Cogswell College. We also oversee all of the clubs, helping new ones to form and existing ones to flourish. The most fun part about ASB are the events we hold. We plan different events through the semester, such as going to the movies, visiting Great America, or having game night on campus. All events are free of charge to enrolled students. All students in degree programs are members of the ASB.
The general student membership provides student feedback and opinions for the Associated Student Body Executive Board.
