Joining a club is an excellent way to meet new people, explore your interests and get involved in the PCS community.
As clubs are formed throughout the year, they will be listed on this page. Each club must have an approved GAFAA (Group Activities and Fundraising Authorization Application) on file before convening or engaging in any activities.
Our clubs are driven by student interest. If you don’t see a club that interests you, start a new club!
See a list of clubs that have been active in the past, but may not be currently approved.
