Organizations & Clubs
DeVry believes strongly that student clubs and activities are an integral part of the total college experience. Organizations and activities give you the opportunity to develop your leadership style, implement new ideas, work together will fellow students and staff, and develop strong organizational skills. The Student Activities Association is the governing body that oversees student life organizations on campus. The Student Activities Association's (SAA) central goal is to provide students with a well rounded college experience through event programming and support of the efforts of our organizations. From time to time the SAA hosts both on and off campus events for the campus community. Here are some events we are hosting this session:
