Start a Club
Starting your own student club/organization is easy, fun and a great opportunity to develop your leadership skills. To get started, simply find five friends who are interested in joining you and contact the Student Council (email@example.com). First, you have to complete the Club Application Google Form. On the form, you have to provide the name of the club, contact information for executive leadership, social media handles if relevant, a club constitution describing the purpose and structure of your group, a promotional paragraph for the AAU website, and, if applicable, the name of the staff or faculty member who will advise the club. At the next Student Council meeting, the 10 members will vote on the approval of your club. You need a majority of votes to receive club status.
How to Join
Clubs are open all school year! It’s never too late to join a club to find a new passion and deepen your connection to the AAU community. Find out more about joining and meeting times by contacting a club’s executive members or visiting their Instagram page.

It is about the creative freedom of expression and meeting new people, having fun, and relaxing. Mischief and laughter included. We will also tap into the improv and public speaking – stage fright and anxiety and how to go around them in any situation! No experience is needed. Extraverts, introverts – everyone is welcome!
