Clubs and other student organizations provide NCS students the opportunity for leadership and development of personal interests. NCS has more than 30 different clubs, and the topics range from STEM, English literature, and anime to the Gender & Sexuality Alliance and building confidence.
Every club is organized by students who also recruit members, create agendas, and pursue goals. This way, clubs represent the diverse interests of the current student body and have the flexibility to focus on issues of current interest as well as longer-term ones.
There are student organizations that have been around for years, such as It's Academic, Book Club, Model UN, and the Black Student Union, which recently celebrated its 30th anniversary. Other organizations are newly organized each year.
Faculty sponsors help students to organize fundraisers, social and academic events, and even competitions depending on the focus of the club or organization. They also help students reach out to the community through student-organized field trips to lectures, movies, rallies, and the like.
