Why should you join one of Kirkwood’s special-interest student clubs? Students actively involved and engaged with clubs and activities on campus actually perform better academically. Plus, involvement in clubs related to your interest area helps you round out your education. Below are clubs specifically related to students interested in psychology.

Active Minds is a national, student-run organization designed to promote mental health awareness and decrease the stigma on college campuses. Students develop creative communication strategies regarding mental health issues and implement through thought provoking activities.
Active Minds allows students to develop leadership skills, increase knowledge of mental health issues, and is an excellent resume builder and networking opportunity.
The club is for anyone. Students who are going into human services, psychology, etc. tend to be interested. However, there are students in the club who are just passionate about mental health and aren't necessarily going into a related field.
Meetings are usually held on Thursday's during fall and spring semesters at 11:15 a.m. in 125 Iowa Hall.
Kirkwood offers a very diverse mixture of clubs and organizations. You can select from a variety of opportunities that suit your personal interests, as well as your program interests. A complete list of clubs and organizations can be found in Student Life.
