By Students, For Students

GGU Social Clubs

On March 10th, we announced that we were going to be introducing GGU’s student clubs by featuring one student club in each #SocialWednesday post–excluding some exceptional editions–starting March 17th. It has been a fun experience reaching out to each club and delivering their words to you and living up to our promise: “By students, for students.”

Last week’s club feature marked the end of that experience as it was the 14th and last club we had to introduce to you. To keep our #SocialWednesday posts fresh, fun and more informative, we will now have a “News & Updates” section on each #SocialWednesday posts to keep you in the know.

We have put together a very convenient list of all of GGU’s active clubs with hyperlinks to the posts they were featured on. Scroll down and simply click on the name of the club you desire to read about, and enjoy reading GGU Social! 🙂
