Student Organizations

    At Ringling College of Art and Design we have a variety of clubs and organizations that are very active on campus. This gives you the opportunity to become involved with a particular group of interest, meet peers, and enhance your educational experience while gaining valuable leadership skills. There is something for every student, no matter what the interest or schedule! 

    Special-interest groups develop or phase out, depending on the interests of each year’s students. Ringling College has had clubs for gamers, writers, photographers, wildlife artists, computer animators, fantasy illustrators, and environmentalists, among others. To receive more information on an existing organization, students can either talk to the members of the specific group or come to the Office of Student Activities and Leadership Development. Because of changing student and meeting schedules, anyone with questions about organization meeting days, times, and locations should contact to receive the most up-to-date information. 

    At the beginning of each semester, the Office of Student Activities and Leadership Develop, in coordination with the Office of Service Learning and Volunteerism, hosts the Club and Volunteerism Fair, which provides opportunities for all members of the campus community to meet directly with organization leadership and learn more about individual organizations.
