Student Clubs

Clubs & Organizations

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. 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.
