Campus Activities & Clubs
Entertaining. Educational. You Really Can Have it All.
We believe that everything you do at Thomas College is a learning experience—and that’s a lot of learning! If our students are moving at lightning speed when you visit campus, it’s because they’re committed to taking advantage of everything Thomas has to offer before they graduate. With so much to do, what will you choose first?
We offer an impressive variety of campus programs, activities, honor societies and academic clubs, service organizations, leadership opportunities, fine and performing arts, athletics, recreation and intramurals, and more. From the silly to the serious, there are so many ways to get involved on campus, make friends, build your résumé, and stretch your limits.
The offices of Residential Life and Housing and Student Life offer WTF?, or “What’s This Friday” and “Thomas After Dark” programs for all students. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re hoping to get outdoors, meet new people, get active, expand your horizons, develop your networking skills, or just have a blast laughing with your friends.
