Guest Post by Thomas Bui, Highline Clubs Leadership Adviser

As a way to build small communities on campus, students clubs and organizations create fun, social and educational experiences outside of the classroom at Highline College. Clubs provide personal growth, leadership development, new friends and a community of support. All are led and initiated by students.

Each academic year, Highine’s clubs program starts fresh with new clubs forming throughout the year. Currently, the program has recognized 43 clubs with more starting up every week.

A Club for Everyone

Joining a club at Highline is simple. To learn about current clubs, students can visit the Center for Leadership and Service in the Highline Student Union (Building 8), attend a scheduled club meeting, or email the club directly to discuss questions about joining.

Each club is an open organization and does not discriminate on the basis of biological sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, race, ethnic background, national origin, class, economic status, age, military and veteran status, disability, language, culture, and religious beliefs.

View the Clubs Directory for the current list of recognized clubs.
