Clubs and Activities


Outside the classroom, Vaughn students get together, work together and have fun together in our student clubs, professional societies, honor societies and in intercollegiate athletics.

Most meet weekly during what Vaughn calls “common hour”: 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. So get involved!
