Student Clubs & Organizations
Chemeketa has many student clubs and organizations for special interests, career fields, cultural diversity, recreation, sports, politics, community service, social events and more.
Whether you want to start a new club or join an existing club, we’re here to help you get involved in life at Chemeketa. To start or re-activate a club, contact Joel Gisbert at the Salem Campus or YVC Student Leaders at the Yamhill Valley Campus.
Yamhill Valley Student Clubs & Organizations
You can become involved in a number of different clubs while you are at Chemeketa. Clubs can be academic, curriculum-related, activity-oriented or based on a specific interest. Club sponsored events include special lunches, dances, displays, trips, fairs and more.
We are currently seeking input for the types of clubs and organizations students are interested in starting at the Yamhill Valley campus.
