Clubs & Organizations

Clubs and Organizations!
CSI offers numerous opportunities for students to get involved. With over 50 clubs and organizations there is something for every student at CSI! Being involved provides an excellent opportunity for students to meet new people, learn new leadership skills, and help build an impressive array of qualifications for future career opportunities. Involvement offers each student an opportunity to TAKE PRIDE IN CSI!

Clubs are funded through your student activity fee! Every club is eligible for a budget that the membership can vote to use to cover the expenses of meetings, events and initiatives. Clubs provide experiences for students to network, learn, engage and have fun!  We encourage you to find a group that shares your interests, career goals, or aspirations. If you don’t see a group that meets your interests or needs – then consider starting your own. 

Club Life

Clubs at CSI are formed around a commonality of educational, vocational, cultural, social, religious, or political interests. Students who get involved in clubs are offered an opportunity to share interests and goals in a non-classroom setting. Clubs at CSI often serve as a center for social interaction and a forum for the expression and exploration of ideas.

Club Hours

During the academic semester CSI features two club hour periods each week that are reserved for "other than classroom activities". These hours, every Tuesday from 2:30pm – 4:25pm and every Thursday from 2:30pm – 4:25pm, are designed to increase learning opportunities by providing time for faculty, staff, and students to attend programs, hold meetings, and pursue interests that may not be strictly related to course content and classroom demands. During these periods most student clubs and organizations hold meetings. The Office of Student Life, Campus Center (1C), room 201, reserves classroom space during club hours so various groups can meet on campus. Club meeting spaces and times are available in the Office of Student Life.

CSI Involvement Ambassadors

The CSI Involvement Ambassadors are experienced undergraduate and graduate students who serve as a resource to CSI students and student organizations on the benefits and opportunities for involvement at the College. Students are encouraged to schedule a meeting with an Involvement Ambassador to discover ways to get involved or for assistance with starting your own group.
