Student Organizations and Volunteering

We believe that extracurricular activities present new angles from which to apply your classroom learning and build experience. Defend your nation’s human rights record in a Model United Nations conference, make friends at Game Nights, or volunteer with Baytna à Vous. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, create your own group! 

 

Get involved

New students interested in getting involved with extra-curricular activities should attend three key events:

  • Welcome Fair – last day of Orientation
  • Club’s Night – every second Tuesday of the semester from 6:30-8:30
  • Designing Your AUP – multiple workshops offered by the ACE Center and Student Development. Look for upcoming workshops here.

Students may also browse through active student organizations at any time on AUP Engage. You may contact student leaders directly on the platform or by emailing the club email to express your interests.

Attending student events is another great way to learn more about campus activities. Browse through upcoming events here and on the CORQ app.

 

Start a Club

Being a student organization leader or taking the lead on a project for the AUP community is not only fun but also an opportunity for you to develop your leadership and teamwork skills.

You may register a new student organization at any time, though we recommend starting a club at the start or end of the semester to be represented at Club’s Night. In the new student organization registration form, you will need to give the name of your club, its leader, contact details and a mission statement (a first draft is okay). If applicable, include the name of any faculty or staff advisor that will be supporting your club.

Once your online application is reviewed and validated by the Student Leadership Office, you will receive an email. As an officially recognized AUP club, you benefit from access to SGA funding, staff and faculty support, campus facilities and more.

 

Fund Your Activities

Any student or student club interested in taking a lead on a project that contributes to the AUP community can benefit from the 100, 000 euro student budget. The budget is managed by Student Government.

Any student can submit a budget request for a student activity by filling out this form. If you would like to fund a club project, please ask your club leader to give you access to your club’s finance tool (all club leaders go through a mandatory training). You may refer to the brochures on this web page for detailed information on how to submit a budget request.
