GET INVOLVED BEYOND THE CLASSROOM

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 interests as varied as performance, culture, design, gaming, and other creative opportunities.
