Several clubs exist to develop and promote diversity at Biola, as well as to provide additional community for students of color. While all students are welcome to participate, these clubs are generally intended to support and honor members of a particular ethnic or cultural group.
If you see a club that appeals to you, get ready to get involved! If you don't see a group that matches your interests, you can think about establishing one.
