The general idea of a club within an educational organization is to let students demonstrate and display their interests that are often lost while they restrict themselves within a strict academic curriculum. At GCU we offer 35 clubs under three broad categories namely, career interest clubs, sports clubs and cultural & professional clubs. The aim of each of the clubs is to encourage students to learn more about themselves and find out where their actual interests lies. The events of the clubs are organized in such a way that students are in a continuous transformational process, but in their areas of interest. As an outcome of the club activities we make sure that a student has an idea on how to handle certain situations better, develop skills of multitasking and contributing in generating new ideas. Most of the clubs at GCU are the first of its kind and aims to identify specific interests in students. Clubs enhance and help in developing the social and cultural atmosphere of any educational institution. It gives students the liberty to showcase their diverse interests while earning credits for the same. Thus, a GCU club is not just a regular club, it is a hub of learning and a platform to perform.
