Clubs and Organizations
The Political Science Club
This nonpartisan student organization is open to students from ALL majors and exists to provide ample opportunities for involvement in practical applications of the concepts and principles of political science. This is accomplished by involvement in such activities as sponsoring campus political speakers, student debates of current political issues, working in political campaigns, sponsoring voter registration drives, and traveling to the state and national capitols. For more information contact Jane Bryant.

The Model UN
Model United Nations’ club offers an opportunity for students to learn about the workings of the United Nations, learn about the many different countries of the world, and apply that knowledge in a simulation setting in Chicago once a year. Students choose and represent a different nation each year at the Chicago simulation. In the past years, students from John A. Logan College have represented Argentina, Austria, and Turkey...
