Doing Stuff and Being Involved.

You’re more than just your academic interests, and we offer way more than just an academic curriculum. You’ll enjoy an active campus life at Beacon through our many student organizations, recreation events, intramural sports, and activities.

Part of the joy of college is participating in a favorite activity — or developing a new interest — while making new friends. Whether you’re an accomplished athlete, a passionate hobbyist, or simply up for the occasional adventure, Beacon has something for you. Student interest drives all activities, student organizations, and intramural sports, which may vary from semester to semester.

You’ll explore, create, laugh, relax, and socialize at the various activities and events. From your first day on campus to your last, there is something for everyone!

Student Organizations

With most students living on campus, they are the backbone of the campus community as they explore new ideas and interests, create friendships, and develop leadership skills.

Leadership is an important aspect of student organizations at Beacon. Student organizations are spearheaded by students with a faculty or staff member serving as an advisor. Students are responsible for managing their own budgets, organizing events, and maintaining cohesiveness in the group. Will you be one of our next student organization leaders?

The hard part is deciding where you want to spend your time. With a wide variety of clubs and organizations ranging from academic to cultural and service-oriented to faith-based, you’ll be active and involved in your Beacon community. Don’t see an organization that interests you - create a new one based on the unique and changing interests of the student body.
