Over 80 student clubs provide students a connection with academic programs, topical interest sharing, sharing of leisure-time activities, social interaction and a connection with the communities of students at the college. Practicing leadership, business and organizational skills outside the classroom enhances students’ life and career goals.
Scheduling Process for Clubs
Student club members should contact Student Life staff member Jelymar Mejia to schedule dates for their club.

“After one semester, I had spent half of my college savings on tuition and room and board. I decided that the financially smart move would be to move home and attend College of DuPage to get my general education requirements and nursing prerequisites completed for a more reasonable cost and then transfer.” - Kaitlyn KundeKaitlyn's COD Story
“Within the first five minutes of joining Pride Alliance, COD’s gay-straight alliance, I was a changed person. And, for the first time in my life, I felt accepted for who I was. My objective was to expand Pride to help more students than it had in the past, so I applied for the president position and, with a great team of officers, we did just that." - Bradley KirouacBradley's COD Story
