Black Student Union

To be in BSU means to be accepted and loved in all of your blackness. I hope that everyone who comes to the club feels a sense of family and community and is comfortable to exist in themselves whatever that may look like.

Maya Fleming, President
Criminal Justice Student Association

Criminal Justice Student Association

To be in CJSA means understanding respect and how brilliantly-minded CLU students can address highly controversial topics. CJSA also means working on building relationships with those with similar interests, enjoying academic conversations, and finding ways to serve the community.

Shelby Scholle, Vice President


As a Latina, it means a lot to be involved in LASO and celebrate Latin traditions, like Las Posadas, with the campus community. Joining a club extends your community and support system as it allows you to establish relationships with people that already have something in common with you.
