Clubs & Organizations at Bennington
Clubs & Orgs at Bennington
More than 50 clubs and organizations are hosted in any given year on campus and nearly all of them are created, activated, and managed by students. While some clubs operate like publications, others are constructed by students looking to learn something new or explore another interest, like say, for instance, building a boat. Students create clubs to celebrate diverse cultures, to provide highly inclusive environments, to connect with each other on performing arts, sports and athletics, or sometimes skill sharing. Every year clubs are added and others weeded as the flow of student interest and activity changes with each class of students at Bennington—providing the most ample flexibility when it comes to Office for Student Engagement funding and support of clubs and organizations as they relate to current student interest.
This list is updated daily, so check back often for new club updates and opportunities!
