Clubs and Organizations

Club Portlet

Clubs play an important role on the California Baptist University campus by encouraging students to pursue interests, develop leadership skills, create meaningful relationships and enhance academic achievements.

Interested in starting a club? Clubs are student led and staff supported. You can find more detailed information under the Community Life tab on InsideCBU where you will find the club application which you can fill out anytime throughout the academic year. 

Interested in joining a club? See a full list of clubs below and feel free to contact the appropriate club president. You are also invited to join us at the Club Fair, Fall Semester (Date TBA). This event is an opportunity to connect with the clubs in person as they give you a glimpse of their mission and how to get involved. It is also a chance for clubs to recruit and network for future collaborations.

We are committed to ensuring your success as you participate in clubs. Any questions please contact Kryssa Johnson, Program Coordinator - Student Clubs.
