Taylor offers a broad array of academic and recreational clubs—there’s something for everyone! By joining one of our clubs, you will collaborate, network, and have fun with peers who share your interests, hobbies, and passions. Whether you have a talent for debates or a knack for improv, there is a club for you and a chance to grow closer to fellow students, faculty, and your calling.
Here is a small sampling of our campus clubs:
Alpha Pi Iota
This pre-healthcare club is open to any student interested in going into a healthcare field. Facilitated by a practicing medical doctor, Alpha Pi Iota allows you to focus on medical ethics, prepare for the MCAT, share summer research experiences, hear from health care professionals, and talk about graduate-level health care programs.
Enactus is an international organization that seeks to serve local communities through entrepreneurial activity. The Taylor chapter aim for students to use their business knowledge to promote sustainable growth through team-based projects. Students have presented ideas such as a website collaborating with Walmart to supply necessities to students (TU Marketplace), a partnership with Thistle Farms of Nashville to increase awareness of Human Trafficking, and an event to introduce 5th and 6th graders to entrepreneurship concepts (Biz-for-Kidz). Enactus students enter business ideas related to finance, supply chain, marketing, and social responsibility into national competitions.
Our nationally ranked team led by Dr. James Spiegel has qualified for nationals eight years in a row. The Ethics Bowl team meets to research and discuss ethical and philosophical theories and their applications. They debate cases at competitions against other colleges, one team defending the presented case with the other questioning them. Their diverse topics cover anything from student loan forgiveness to the programming of self-driving cars.
Flannery O’Connor Society
Develop research, interview, and writing skills by contributing to The Flannery O’Connor Society’s blog, an outlet that encourages and supports the literary study of Flannery O’Connor and her creative work. It also keeps track of where O’Connor appears in the media and academic journals. Dr. Colleen Warren, Professor of English, is Vice President of the national society and provides students a direct connection to the society’s work.
International Justice Mission
Taylor students have recently formed their own chapter of International Justice Mission. This international organization serves in developing countries and attempts to protect innocent individuals from being exploited. They work against slavery, sex trafficking, sexual violence, police brutality, land theft, and citizen rights abuse all around the world. Taylor’s IJM seeks to advocate for the international company’s mission through prayer and fundraising.
Not just for Psychology majors, the Psychology Club provides a space for both students and faculty to work together and provide meaningful experiences through service-learning projects, academic and informational meetings, and social events. Weekly club meetings sometimes feature guest speakers who talk about psychology basics, career paths, and master’s degree opportunities.
This comedy improv club exists to make you laugh! The club enlists witty students who are quick on their feet to host interactive shows throughout the year. Join this team of comedians in their weekly practices and bring laughter to campus.
The Taylor University Voices of Praise Gospel Choir is an intentionally diverse choir that proclaims the gospel of reconciliation through the ministry of performing black gospel music and dance. This choir is open to Taylor University students, staff and faculty members. New members are accepted at the start of every semester. Contact Caitlin Jacques for more information.
