KSOM Clubs

The Kania School of Management sponsors clubs because we understand that students need a balance between studies, social activities, and service opportunities. Involvement in one or more of these organizations will enhance your college career, provide a basis for developing lasting friendships, a sense of belonging and a foundation for establishing a professional network of contacts among your fellow students, faculty and prominent business people. For more information about KSOM Clubs, contact the faculty moderator.
