La Plata Student Clubs and Organizations

All La Plata Campus students are members of the La Plata Student Association, which supports the projects and programs of all student clubs and organizations catering to students with interests ranging from ethnic education to community service.  You too can join, or lead, any of these organizations.  We offer opportunities to start your own club, voice your opinion, give back to your community, network with peers, gain leadership skills, enjoy social activities, and more.  You determine your college experience, so why not start here for a little enhancement.
