Campus Clubs

Ask Grand View University students what advice they would give to first-year students, and they’ll tell you, “Get involved!” In fact, research shows that college students who get involved in clubs and organizations get better grades and report having more fun in college than those who don’t.

Check out our many campus clubs below to see what Grand View has to offer. If you are interested in learning more about a campus organizations, contact Heidi Pries at
