Whether you are looking for a challenge, want to make a difference, or are interested in meeting new people, Nebraska Methodist College has a variety of student organizations offering students a number of opportunities.
NMC’s student organizations range in focus, giving students a chance to be involved on campus, gain more knowledge about their chosen career path, or grow their personal faith.
Among their many activities, students involved in these organizations serve the campus community, organize events benefitting local non-profits and attend events focused on profession development.
According to Erika Pritchard, coordinator of Student Leadership Development at NMC, being involved in a student organization is a great way to learn skills outside the classroom that students will take with them into their careers.
“Through student organizations, students learn how to be leaders, work in teams, communicate effectively and make a difference in the lives of others — all highly important skills in the health care field,” says Pritchard.
NMC offers the following student organizations:
- NMC Sorority is a social and service-oriented sorority open to all NMC students. The sorority promotes personal development and intellectual growth and works to build lasting bonds of friendship among students though community service, chapter meetings and social events.
