Clubs and Organizations

Albizu University strives to promote a sense of belonging to a larger community, and there is no better way to embrace this mission than to become part of a student association.

Through the efforts of the student organizations listed below, AU develops the content and themes of the student life campaign and distinguished lecture series. We encourage you to join the organizations that interest you and take an active role in building on the successes of AU alumni, establishing your own footprint in both the classroom and the community.

A crucial part of a well-rounded college experience is the opportunity to explore new interests, make new friends, and discover who you are. Years from now, when memories of long nights cramming for exams while balancing other responsibilities fade away, you will realize that the college moments you cherish most took place outside the classroom.

For more information on student organizations or help in choosing the ones that are right for you, please contact the Director of Student Success Programs in Miami (305-593-1223, ext. 3135)  or an academic counselor in San Juan (787-725-6500, ext. 1570).

Student Council

Albizu University’s Student Council always seeks fresh ideas from students. Keeping the door open to new ideas encourages communication, cooperation, and understanding among students, faculty, and administration and leads to innovative ways to promote the interests and objectives of a growing and active academic community.

The Student Council exists to provide students with a voice in enhancing the college experience. We work to create an engaging campus environment that complements the rigors of the academic program. By developing a stimulating series of student activities, we pave the way for students to network outside the classroom and enjoy a familiar sense of community.

As members of the Student Council, we are all AU students ourselves. We encourage our fellow students to make a voice for themselves and be part of our “family.”
