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.

The Nexus Club at RMCAD is the jumping point for creatives curious about life and work in the VFX, film/animation and games industries. Its mission is to build a safe and collaborative networking space for both academic and future professionals. The focus is to develop a strong sense of community among artists across many disciplines within RMCAD through shared interests – gaming, film, and pop culture – as well as hosting guest speakers, discussing emerging media and technologies, participating in game jams, and viewing/discussing all aspects of artistic media. The Nexus Club will seek to engage with industry professionals in Colorado and beyond to create a broad network of professional and personal opportunities for current, former and future RMCAD students. The Nexus Club will strive to instill its members with a sense of personal confidence in their work and their skill and help to lead them to their chosen career path. The Nexus will be a place of support and inspiration for current members, new members, and alumni. The Nexus Club seeks to foster and support future professional leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators and community activists who will carry its ideals and mission into the greater world. More than anything, The Nexus is about doing! We seek to continually create activities and events to facilitate our mission. While it’s nice to sit around and chat, our focus is to sit around and chat while doing something fun! Every month will be a series of events and activities centered around key artistic disciplines, while we also will offer a guest speaker every term – as either an industry professional or our very own RMCAD instructors. We’ll also host holiday parties and related activities. Illuminate. Inspire. Collaborate. Connect.

Roll@RMCAD promotes creativity by connecting students to the glorious roleplaying game that is Dungeons & Dragons. Whether you are a veteran of the game or a complete beginner, students across all programs of study are welcome. Schedules change from term-to-term, and not everyone can commit to a full-fledged campaign. To combat this, our Dungeon Masters are collaborating to create an engaging system for weekly one-shot events. These weekly events will be casual and typically last no more than a few hours. The Weekly One-Shot Realm is scheduled to launch Spring B, 2021. New to Dungeons & Dragons? No worries! We offer a Character Creation Workshop during the first week of every A Term. Learn the basics of the game and build your very first character! We also offer a Dungeon Master Workshop during the first week of every B Term. Learn what it takes to become a Dungeon Master and create immersive worlds, engaging stories, and cunning NPCs.

The Roll@RMCAD community lives within our Discord server. Chat with fellow students, share interesting content, and keep up-to-date with the latest announcements. Due to COVID-19, all of our events will be virtual. We will be using our Discord server to organize and run events, including club meetings, workshops, and adventures.
