Club and Organizations

Adventist University of Health Sciences clubs and organizations have been established to help students prepare for success in their futures careers.  Below is a list of the clubs and organizations currently active on campus. 

All prospective campus clubs must make application for approval before they are allowed to function on any Adventist University of Health Sciences (ADU) campus.  Campus club requirements and requisite forms to make application are located online at, or may be obtained at the office of Student Services. Campus clubs must have strong healthcare components, tying them closely to the professional medical programs offered at ADU. As a private institution, the administration of Adventist University of Health Sciences reserves the right to deny the organization or function of any club whose goals, objectives, or activities are or would be counter to the mission and beliefs of ADU.

Service-Learning Requirements

Service-Learning is required of all students at Adventist University of Health Sciences (ADU).  Service-Learning combines academic subject matter in a given discipline with service within the community or for a given population. Guided reflection is a key component of Service-Learning; students will integrate their service experience(s) with classroom knowledge to enhance the learning process. Service-Learning projects contain learning objectives and measures and are credit-bearing (graded).

For questions or concerns about Service-Learning requirements, please contact the Director of Community Engagement in the Student Services Department.

*Students accepted into a program prior to Fall 2011 must complete the Service-Learning hour requirements as stated in the Academic Catalog (formerly known as Academic Bulletin) for the year of entrance into the program.

Welcome Week

We want to make your transition into each semester a smooth one because we know it can be challenging continuing in your educational journey. To start you off right, we provide our students with lunch, networking opportunities with other students, staff, and faculty, a chance to become involved in academic societies, and a time to win fun prizes and grab some freebies! Please, keep an eye on your ADU student email, as this is the way we communicate with you regarding events and campus life.
