Clubs

Bryn Mawr Student Clubs

Clubs are listed within the following interest areas: 

All  Clubs must review and abide by all Club and Community Policies.

Starting a Club: Steps for starting a new club

1. Explore the clubs already in existence at Bryn Mawr College before starting a club. If a student finds that we do not have a club which is of interest to them they can choose to start their own club. However, the club must be different than any club already on campus.

2. Gain interest and members from the student body by hosting an event. A minimum of five members is required for any new club.

3. Once you have five members you can petition the Office of Student Activities to start a new club. Petitions are accepted in September and January and the petition form will be available on the Student Activities website during the first two weeks of each semester.

4. If funding is desired, the new club must submit a written constitution to SGA's Student Finance Committee in the beginning of the semester. Please review the Constitution Guide for a template. Constitution Guide (PDF) (Word)

5. All clubs are required to register each academic year with the Office of Student Activities at the beginning of the fall semester.

Dedicated to the exuberance and passion of Latin culture, Pulso Latino aims to attract a multitude of dancers, regardless of ethnicity. Members will be given the opportunity to both audition for and choreograph individual pieces, which are performed at the end of each semester and during special events. Additionally, professionally instructed classes or workshops will be offered to aid the creative process, as night-clubs tend to challenge dancers differently than choreographed routines performed before an audience. Members will participate in volunteer activities involving latin dance in the surrounding community at least once per semester.

Climbing Club

The purpose of this club is to make rock climbing accessible to Bryn Mawr College students. We would like to have weekly or bi-weekly trips to Philadelphia Rock Gym (East Falls). This will allow students the opportunity to either try rock climbing for the first time, or to further develop their climbing skills. We have many students who have never had the opportunity to climb before and who are incredibly excited to get the chance. Climbing is an activity that improves quality of life and may help students lead happier, healthier lives. Not only does it significantly improve physical strength and agility, it also increases mental strength, reduces stress, teaches valuable life skills, and gives a deeper respect for the environment. We emphasize those traits not only through our weekly trips, but also through skills lessons that help beginning climbers become more thoughtful, efficient, and powerful climbers.
