How does "everything" sound? You can usually find a list of clubs and organizations on a college's website, and they will likely include ethnic, cultural, spiritual, community service, media outlets, arts, hobbies, political, social, activist, governing boards, student programming, academic, and honor society groups. Plus, there's also Greek life, indoor and outdoor recreation, and intramural sports. And if they don’t have a particular club or organization that interests you; just find a few friends who share your interests, and you can likely start a club of your choice. Most colleges, when it comes to cultural clubs, will have some variation of a Black Student Union, Asian American Association, Hispanic Students Association, and much more.

You can find more about culturally supportive colleges in our College Diversity section or more about clubs and activities in our Student Life section.
