Student Organizations


The Ceramics Club is for those who are interested in working with clay as an art form. The Ceramics Club hosts an annual pottery sale every fall semester. The club contributes to off-campus trips and opportunities promoting the awareness of the ceramic arts, sponsors visiting artists and supports student development. Prior to the pottery sale, the club hosts “Pot ’til You Drop,” a day to make pottery for the Ceramic Club Pottery Sale. Students, alumni, and friends come together for this event.
