Clubs at St. Mary’s
St. Mary’s University’s Student Legislative Council (SLC) has a series of clubs for students to join and encourages students to make their own clubs each year. The SLC sees clubs as an important aspect of campus life at St. Mary’s and as a way to make new friends who share similar interests.
“I would encourage all students to get involved and come check out the clubs since university can be an intimidating place for students at first. Joining a club allows for students to meet new people and make new friends on campus you might not have otherwise.” – SLC’s Vice-President Internal, Amanda Butler
If you would like to join a club or create your own, please contact SLC’s Vice President Internal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
