The Pride at Play
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
From Spanish Club to our car-building Society of Automotive Engineers groups to student government, there are organizations for every passion and interest at PNW. Join a professional society, volunteer in the community or even learn how to play a new sport.
Inclusive and Welcoming PNW
At PNW, you will find space to be your truest self. We offer a culture of inclusivity, equitable treatment and welcoming opportunities for all.
As a minority and first-generation student there were so many support services to take advantage of and so many people I could connect with and relate to.
All of those experiences, the clubs and internships, connected the textbooks to the real world. The things I was learning in class – skills, tools, assessments and communication, I was able to take all of those things into my internship and apply them while I was there.
I like to emphasize that PNW is a place for everyone. No matter the culture that you are, no matter where you come from, we have a place for you here.
You can just walk into a club on any day and you’ll feel like you belong, even if you’ve never met those people before.
Get involved because it is really worth it. Start by going to a couple of meetings — the more people you meet, the more networking you do, the farther you can go.
