Clubs & Societies

Being involved with a club on campus is a great way to meet other students with the same interests or goals, build networks and have fun. Clubs also give students opportunities to learn new skills in event management and administration - useful additions to a resume for when you have finished at Uni.

Clubs affiliated with the BSA receive training, financial and administrative support from the BSA who believe clubs are vitally important to a healthy university community.

Joining a Club
Many clubs have stalls during O Week or Bruce Week where you can talk to members and find out what they do. All clubs have a membership fee starting at $5.00 for BSA members. You can now join any club at the BSA Info Desk or by contacting the Club directly.

BSA Membership Discount
BSA Members get a $5 discount on any affiliated club membership.

Club Awards
The annual club awards celebrates the work that club committees do in running a successful University club or society. Categories include Club of the Year, New club of the Year, Club person of the year and many more.

The 2016 Club Awards will be held on Thursday 1 September at one of Bendigo's premier venues and includes finger food and live music. More details about Award categories, venue and times available closer to the date. More
