Student Activities at Averett

Ski trips and movie nights on the lawn. Comedians and leadership conferences. Easter egg hunts and bowling nights. Iron Chef in Jut’s Café and late night breakfasts. Our Campus Activities Board works non-stop to keep the events coming all year long. But you’ll also find clubs and organizations for every interest – we’ve even got a competitive-flying team. The best thing about it? You can be a key part of any group or event you choose starting the moment you arrive. Many of our activities are connected with national and international groups, meaning you have additional scope for expanding your network of friends. From honor societies to spiritual life groups, there are plenty of ways for you to get involved!
