Like Government? CUSA is Our Student Government

The Clarkson University Student Association (CUSA) supports Clarkson students through a variety of clubs and organizations and serves as the formal representative of the student body. Composed of the executive board, six senators from each class and a Clarkson School representative, the CUSA Senate collaborates with the Clarkson administration on all decisions that affect Clarkson students. These decisions are made in Senate meetings or in one of the Senate's committees, which are open to all students. CUSA is also responsible for allocating to sponsored clubs and organizations; this is the activity fee you pay each semester.

Serving on the CUSA Senate gives you the chance to develop your professional skills in communication, collaboration and negotiation. Serving also provides the opportunity to perform useful work for the campus community. Find out more about CUSA and how to get involved at

If you like concerts, hypnotists, comedians, movies, open mic nights and other performances, you've come to the right place!

CUB is Clarkson’s programming board and hosts a variety of campus events throughout the semester. CUB also co-sponsors events with other organizations and University offices and departments. Be sure to check out the events on Knight Life and drop in on one of the meetings on Mondays at 6 p.m. in the Student Center MPRs. CUB has some great shows planned for this semester and hopes to see you there.

Membership is open to any Clarkson student who wants to help program activities for the campus or help run sound and lights for shows.
