Clubs and Organizations
With over 45 clubs and organizations ranging from Pokemon to the Rock Climbing club, we have something for everyone.
Clubs and organizations are a great way to meet new people, challenge your thinking, practice leadership, and get hands-on experience working on something that matters to you. With over 60 clubs, organizations and teams, we have something for everyone.
RISD clubs and organizations are divided into six collectives.
- Arts—Focused on the visual and performing arts, these clubs and
organizations are a great way for you to supplement your academic
- Athletic Teams/ Fitness—Ranging in levels from clubs to varsity,
these groups give you a chance to get out of your studio and move, while
meeting like-minded individuals from other parts of campus.
- Community—Step outside the world of RISD and get involved in the greater community of Providence.
- Professional—Get hands-on experience that can transfer to life
beyond RISD. Run a student gallery, work at the Second Life art supply
store, and more.
- Common Interests—With a wide variety of themes, these clubs allow
you to step outside the art and design arena and share your interests
with your fellow students.
- Cultural, Religious, and Identity—Explore new cultures and learn more about your own in these all-inclusive groups.
