On Thursday a campus club fair is being held to promote the good things the clubs do and the positive connections a student can make within the school and possibly the industry he or she wishes to become a professional in.
One of the largest and longest running clubs on campus is Student Chapter of National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (SCNAVTA). This club raises money for animals in need. Today, June 12, 2012 the club is holding a pancake breakfast on

The other large organization on campus is the Criminal Justice Club (CJ). The main objective of the CJ club is to plan and coordinate a successful Emergency Services Day.
