When you get to PBA you’ll quickly find that you’re among the best and the brightest. A big part of that culture of excellence we provide is the vast range of opportunities to engage in student government, clubs and organizations.
Involvement in student government, clubs and organizations is a great way to develop and sharpen leadership skills. Discover new interests. Make new friends. Add depth to your overall learning experience. And form connections that you’ll value well beyond your years at PBA. Clubs are moderated through the Student Activities, Involvement and Leadership Office. And if you have an interest that doesn’t have club representation, you’ll be able to start one up yourself.
