Student Clubs

Start a club! Join a club!

Student clubs are a great opportunity for students to get involved, grow as an individual, explore different activities, find a passion, and prepare yourself for life after graduation! With the support of students and staff at Columbia College, we are able to offer new clubs and events based on student interests. 

For more information, please contact Student Life.

OPERATING A CLUB

Running a successful club requires a lot of dedication and organization. There’s deadlines to meet, forms to fill out, bookings to make, members to look after, and of course, some rules to follow.

Many events at Columbia College are organized by student clubs! Event planning is a fun way for students to get practical experience in communication, budgeting, marketing and other leadership skills.

Please complete the Application for Student-Led Event to request funds that are going towards an event. If you are requesting funds for non-event related items, complete the Club Budget Request.

If you wish to host a student-led event for your club, you must submit the Application for Student-Led Event . We recommend submitting your application at least 4 weeks in advance of the date of your event. We cannot guarantee availability.

Please note that completing this form does not mean that your event is approved. Once submitted, a Student Life Coordinator will contact you by email with next steps.

Student clubs are allowed to partake in fundraising activities. Fundraising activities must comply with the Columbia College Fundraising and Donation Acceptance Policy.

Once you have read and understood the policy, you can apply to organize a fundraiser using the Fundraising Activity Form.

At the end of each semester, one executive member from each club must complete the Student Club End Semeter Report Form.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email Student Life.

Clubs that do not have this form completed by the end of final exam week will have to resubmit a new club application form to reactivate the club.
