Clubs & Organizations

 

Bringing students together to make a lively campus community. Student Organizations are ongoing projects that have grown from various independent studies and senior projects into micro-businesses. Most of these organizations operate with the support of Prescott College under the management of current students and graduates. Each student organization is offered space on campus to meet and work. Many organizations have a great impact on society and had their roots in a student club or organization. Prescott College encourages students to form clubs and to join clubs as part of their academic and personal journey at the College.

 


Archery Club

Archery Club mission is to give students the opportunity to learn and develop a new skill and build confidence in that skill and within themselves as well a level of self efficacy. It supports Prescott Colleges Mission statement by bringing people together and working together toward a common goal. Students will help each other become better archers and possibly introduce people to a skill they never had the chance to experience before. In Archery club students will learn the basics of archery and bow and arrows. Students will learn the basic components such as a knock, peep sight, fletching, broadheads, string, limbs and grip etc. Students will learn how to shoot either a recurve bow or a compound bow. Also Students who may be more experienced with archery can bring their own bows and just come to practice shooting and maybe help out their peers with shooting and techniques.
