At Penn State Berks, numerous organizations provide opportunities for students to build upon common interests or expand horizons, all while making new friends and enhancing a resume with leadership roles. Within our small-college environment, opportunities exist within social organzations and honor societies.

If there's an interest, there's a club for you. We have many clubs which offer students the opportunity to lead, serve others, expand knowledge in their major, perform, compete, and make new friends. Currently, the student clubs and organizations recognized by the Student Government Association fit in the following categories:
