On Jan. 25, Biola clubs and organizations set up along Sutherland Way for the Involvement Fair where representatives encouraged fellow students to stop by their booths. From science to sports to entertainment, students can join a club to become a part of a smaller community within Biola. 


Clubs such as the History, Philosophy or Accounting Society Club give students the opportunity to expand their knowledge in the subject. The Health Careers Club and the CNSA allow students pursuing a career in healthcare to connect with other students and prepare them for a future in that field. For those looking to get involved with people who have disabilities, the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association or Disability Care Club gives students that chance by raising awareness and reaching out to the disabled community. 

The NSSLHA is a national student-led organization designed for students studying communication sciences and disorders, while the Disability Care Club hosts the Special Olympics, an autism walk and movie nights to interact with and spread awareness about those with disabilities both in and outside of Biola’s community. 

“I really just, at least for me, want to get more involved and immerse myself more into the world of disabilities,” said club president and senior communication sciences disorders major Tiana Comeaux when asked what her goal is for the club.

Fellow club member Danielle Therese Ty, who is a junior communication sciences disorders major, chimed in.

“I want to bring more awareness to those with disabilities and that they’re not incapable of doing anything,” Therese Ty said.


If students desire to get involved with clubs that are more for entertainment or fun, there are options like intramural sports, creative writing or dance clubs. The Swing Dance Club in particular can be an outlet for many Biolans. 

“Our goal is to glorify God through swing dancing, to have a community for students to come together,” junior accounting major and vice president of the Swing Dance Club Rosio McCullough said. 

Students who want to find out more information or are interested in joining these clubs can navigate to the Campus Engagement website where a description of the club and their contact information are provided.
