Many university graduates look back fondly on their college years because of the strong bonds they developed with fellow students. At JCU, we strive to maximize the quality of your time with us. This involves numerous opportunities to forge strong friendships that bring you needed support, lasting memories, and plenty of fun. The student life experience at John Cabot University is designed to immerse you in various cultural activities that will open your mind to new perspectives and people in our diverse community represented by 75 different countries. 

Through our student-led clubs and organizations, you can develop strong bonds with fellow JCU community members based on shared interests, the courage to get out of your comfort zone, and the pursuit of self-improvement. Read on to discover how we help you find your team in clubs. 


Clubs at JCU Connect You With Those Who Share Your Interests

Student-led clubs and organizations at JCU accommodate a broad range of interests. Are you curious about various cultures? Are you passionate about addressing pressing world issues? Do you have a passion for politics? Your idea of a good time is playing board games with friends. At JCU, our clubs allow you to pursue any of these hobbies and interests with our community of highly passionate individuals. Shared interests among JCU students provide a strong foundation for fun, memorable, and meaningful friendships.

Get Out of Your Comfort Zone and Explore Our Diverse Community

With over twenty different clubs and organizations to choose from, our clubs provide the perfect opportunity to step outside your comfort zone. At JCU, we understand the value of curiosity, adventure, and discovery, encouraging students to expand their horizons intellectually through travel and social contexts. 

By exploring different clubs, you can embark on a journey to self-discovery that acquaints you with new interests you may have never uncovered otherwise. In addition, by experimenting with various clubs, you’ll likely meet students, perhaps completing different degrees from yours, who can introduce you to various new perspectives. The diverse community at John Cabot allows you to gain insight into different cultures and perspectives from peer groups who share your interests.
