Clubs “by students, for students” in the sense that they only continue to exist if there is student interest and leadership to sustain them. They meet a wide range of goals and purposes for the students, however they consistently meet the six areas of activities at Northwestern College: recreational, relational, educational, spiritual, vocational, and opportunities for witness/service.
To be recognized as an official student club with the privilege of using College facilities and resources, groups must charter with Student Development.
Clubs must be chartered annually and club training is held each semester so that students learn the proper protocol for planning events and utilizing their resources.
Club Day is held early in the fall and spring semesters so that all NWC students may learn of the opportunities available to them through the various clubs.
Upon being approved and completing training clubs will receive the following privileges on campus:
Promoting events and meetings in official NWC student media outlets
Posting items in approved areas on campus
Use of meeting space on campus
Use of professional sound and light equipment for events
Ability to use and reserve college vans
