Campus Clubs

Clubs are a way for students to connect with people that share similar interests. Clubs are supported by the Associated Students with access to campus facilities, Associated Student funding, and much more! Being part of a club is a great way to find a place to belong and have fun on campus.

Look below for our list of existing Rocklin clubs. Nothing here that interests you? Forming your own club is simple! Find out how to make a new club by stopping by the Campus Life Office (J7, next to the cafeteria).
