Art and design school does not have to be all work and no play. College is about meeting new people and discovering new interests. What better way to start experiencing new things than to join a club or organization that interests you?
Intended to inspire and educate, it is our goal to get students engaged in their interests outside of the classroom. Student Life offers students fun and unique activities, clubs, and organizations to promote lifelong learning and lasting relationships in an inclusive environment. Whether social, professional, cultural, or educational, Student Life is here to assist you in getting involved in life on campus.
Involvement in student clubs and activities can have a positive impact on the overall experience of students by providing opportunities to meet new friends, connect with the campus and Denver art community, as well as the development of valuable leadership, communication, and problem-solving skills.
RMCAD also has a variety of student clubs, supported by the Student Government Association and Student Life and representing various interests, such as performance, culture, design, gaming, and other creative opportunities.

AIGA student chapter provides a strong community for design students that focuses on opportunities for students to work alongside other school departments as well as organizations outside of the College to allow students to network and utilize their design capabilities to carry forward in their future careers.
The ASID RMCAD Chapter hosts monthly events focused on interior design to provide students with learning and networking opportunities within the interior design industry. Whether we hear from professionals in the industry, discuss topics with faculty and students, or just enjoy talking design, our events encourage students to explore design beyond what is learned in the classroom.
As a scientific club we strive to promote understanding. We will aim to bare witness to notable astronomical events, study the objects in the sky and conduct experiments applying knowledge of physics and math to the universe around us. Although math is a large part of astronomy, strong math skills are not required. Whether you are a lifelong astronomer or a casual observer we have something for you.
Each member of The RMCAD Photographers will receive quarterly photography assignments geared toward producing essays that any media outlet would jump to publish. Assignments will be compiled quarterly into a digital in-house publication then added to each photographer’s portfolio.

Clay Club is a place for all members of the RMCAD community to engage with each other, explore new materials and techniques, and gain new experiences regardless of their degree path. Our goals are to broaden our skills and knowledge of ceramics while fostering a community for people to explore, play, and slay some clay.
The Concept Art Club brings together all those who are passionate about concept art. All majors are welcome! This includes on-ground students, online students and alumni. The Concept Art Club is a place where you can share work and receive helpful critique, take field trips, and discover industry professionals, like RMCAD professors, who are willing to discuss their careers and/or offer feedback on portfolios. Learn about art opportunities, like Instagram challenges or art shows, at meetings and, of course, draw!
The Comics Club is a chill community for artists who share an interest in comics! We hang out, talk about art and comics, and work on any personal projects, collaborations, or assignments. We meet online once or twice a month. Join us on Discord or on the Instagram group chat!
The Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design (RMCAD) Theater Society is a student group producing original theatrical performances, attending local theatrical productions, and supporting other community theater groups. Our mission is to train, organize, and showcase the performing arts talents of RMCAD students. We fulfill this mission by producing our own original theatrical performances, by attending local theatrical productions and engaging industry professionals, and by supporting community theater organizations such as school groups and nonprofits.
Our goal is to replicate the environment of a professional animation studio that encourages collaboration, learning, and the creation of portfolio-worthy work. Regardless of what part of the pipeline a member is interested in (character design, storyboarding, animation, editing, etc.), we want to welcome them into a space where they can feel motivated to create work independently, and/or participate in group projects such as art challenges and short films.
The purpose of this organization is to fully support its members in honing their creativity and inspire them individually and as a group throughout several yearly multidisciplinary collaborations. Together, online and on-ground students, faculty, and staff of Rocky Mountain College of Art +Design will support its members needing critique, surveys, personal or creative advice, assignment trials, or other ways within the RMCAD rules. No matter your skill level, just show up with a creative mindset and questions we dare to answer. This club is for everyone who feels the need to belong to a creative, active group that inspires and guides them toward new projects which will expand their creative way of thinking and making art. Your priorities and other college engagements come first and are welcome to be discussed. If you like to deepen your artistic communication channels, spice up your portfolio, and learn new skills while working with your peers. Join the cohort and become a 360 Thinker today! May the Ethos, Logos, and Pathos be with you.
Our club activities revolve around getting into nature and sharing the experience with others. We aim to help you meet new people from different departments and help you get out of the house by exploring the great Colorado outdoors!
This group is meant for everyone, including those not in the Fashion Design degree program to be able to openly converse with others and to help creativity flourish. We do some challenges and activities pertaining to creating a diverse culture in not just fashion but the art world as a whole.
The JAT Club is for all gifted individuals with particular talents to join as one group, and teach one another how they approach their art with their specific skill sets to all members. Just like big industries have multiple artists working towards one giant project, this club works to replicate similar scenarios with a focus on either school work or individual and personal projects.
Prism aims to promote diversity, encourage inclusivity, and celebrate our differences by providing a safe space for LGBT+ students of RMCAD to be loud, proud, and vibrant – unapologetically ourselves! This club is a student’s gateway to actively supporting the school’s DEI policies and further the school’s wonderful community of artists.
To accomplish this we will be establishing a space to find resources, learn, and grow as a community. We will have meetings to facilitate
communication between RMCAD and its students, host and collaborate with other groups on events, and appoint a diverse group of leadership members so that everyone is represented and therefore feels heard.
We also aim to educate each other on matters of diversity otherwise unexplored as a group, delving into such subjects as the vast and rich spectrum of gender and sexuality, what it’s like to grow up queer, stories of self-discovery and personal experiences, often by using our art as a vessel to help others understand us. We plan to host a gallery of works by queer students, including gallery walks and an opportunity to chat with and learn from the artists, as well as an opportunity for queer artists to network. Each meeting is a new opportunity to be proud of oneself, one’s art, and the RMCAD community!
