Activities & Clubs
Every student becomes a member of the Student Government Association, which coordinates student activities and provides opportunities for students to express their ideas and make recommendations to faculty and administration. Students are well represented through elected class officers, representatives to student organizations and student members of medical school committees. Student government leaders meet regularly with the Dean’s Office staff to address student concerns. National organizations, such as the American Medical Student Association, the American Medical Women’s Association and the Student National Medical Association have chapters on campus. We send student representatives to meetings of the student division of the Association of American Medical Colleges, where they can exchange information with peers from medical schools across the nation. Those students who are interested in student activities and student government have many opportunities.
The College of Medicine is replete with over 100 student-run organizations and discipline-specific interest groups that add to students’ academic life. Student organizations on campus include community outreach groups, medical student association groups, Drexel fitness programs, medical student cultural and lifestyle clubs and literary and musical organizations. Artistic presentations by students, faculty and staff occur though the academic year.
Student Activities Center
The 17,620 sq. foot Student Activities Center greatly enhances the learning and living environment of the Queen Lane campus. Students have access to a student lounge; an outdoor patio and basketball court; the bookstore; student government and organization space; quiet study space; and a comprehensive fitness center with TVs, lockers, and showers. A multi-purpose room provides state-of-the art educational media and teleconferencing capability in a space that can be configured for lectures, exams, assemblies, dining and entertainment.
