As one of the largest clubs on campus, it is difficult to get everything done alone. That is why we have committee meetings to give our members a chance to directly get involved with our club! Each committee specializes in one particular aspect of our club, and once in a while we'll even hold workshops to help you guys develop your personal skills! Here is a look at some of our club committees. Check out our calendar for times!
