Student Clubs

We strive to glorify God in all that we do, and clubs and organizations are no exception. The majority of a student’s time at Covenant College will be spent outside of the classroom, so it is important to take advantage of all the wonderful co-curricular opportunities and activities one will find at Covenant. This includes opportunities for growth, opportunities for friendship, and opportunities for leadership. Campus clubs and organizations are vital to Covenant and help further growth and fellowship here on campus. Students with new ideas and passions are regularly adding new clubs and may contact Student Senate to join an existing club or to express an interest in starting a new club.
