Student Clubs

At AUIS, we believe a student's activities outside the classroom are important to educating the whole person and to providing students with a well-rounded university experience.

Involvement in student organizations gives students the opportunity to make an impact and leave their mark at AUIS, while developing new skills and forging new relationships.  

To that end, we encourage all students to become active in the many campus activities taking place at AUIS. Through our many campus activities, AUIS students develop a diverse set of core values that honor teamwork, sportsmanship, community and leadership, while enhancing self-confidence.

For more information about student activities on campus, please contact the Student Services Coordinator, MIna Bassam Attar, at mina.bassam [at] (subject: Student%20Organizations%20at%20AUIS) .
