Diablo Valley College Student Clubs

Student clubs at Diablo Valley College are student initiated and run. The student club program on the Diablo Valley campus is an integral part of DVC's educational program. It gives students opportunities to develop valuable leadership and interpersonal skills that will benefit the student while at DVC, and in their future. Students learn to organize, work with others, pursue special interests, and make friends.

Club membership is open to all Diablo Valley College students regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin or physical limitations. All clubs have mail boxes in the Margaret Lesher Student Union Building. Messages may be left for club officers in their mailboxes. You can take a look at the club list to see the variety of clubs that will be active this semester. Meetings are open to all students. Check one out!
