Student lifestyle

There are more than 70 clubs on campus that provide social and athletic activities, travel, religious fellowship, and charitable and cultural support. Some clubs surf in California while others debate in Ottawa. Some have hosted speakers and sponsored conferences; some have presented art shows and music concerts.

Clubs provide opportunities to meet new people on campus, develop a support system, connect with other students in your program, or try out a new interest. You may even discover a hidden talent.

If you are interested in trying out for a varsity team the best thing you can do is contact the coach early on. You can also go online and fill out theProspective Athlete Formfor more information.

Coaches recruit the majority of Pronghorn student athletes prior to the start of the season. However, each varsity team will hold an open try-out in the weeks leading up to their season. Visit to see the schedule and to connect with a Pronghorn coach.
