At Bryn Athyn College, student organizations serve as a vital part of campus life. Our small size means that our volleyball players can take lead parts in our plays, and that the editor of Pythia Journal can also be an active member of our Community Service Organization. Our tight-knit community means that our students can pursue many different interests and try out new things, regardless of their prior experience. Students can sing with BAC A Cappella, try foods from the around the world with the International Student Organization, and plan a trip to Philadelphia with the Outing Club. And our active Student Government and Social Committee empower students to start new clubs and organize their own social events.
Student Organizations with Purpose
At Bryn Athyn College, student organizations are not just about having fun—they are about building relationships, providing a service, promoting the public good, and strengthening the College community. These principles are exemplified by the BAC FeelGood chapter, which raised $4,131 in the 2013-2014 school year to help end world hunger, and by our Active Minds chapter, which works to raise awareness about mental health issues on our campus.
Not all of our student clubs are focused on community service, but each one of our clubs looks beyond the needs and wants of the individual members and works to contribute to the broader community—on campus, locally, and even nationwide and beyond.
