Campus Clubs and Organizations
Because learning also happens outside of the classroom, the Upper Bucks Campus is very committed to providing an active and vibrant Student Life for our students. With award-winning student clubs committed to service, entertainment, spirituality, diversity, scholarship, and creative expression, the Upper Bucks Campus strives to enhance not only your educational experience, but your personal enrichment as well.
