Student –Clubs &Societies

The Social and Cultural Affairs Office accommodates 47 student societies. Since we assume that the accomplishments of our students in social and cultural activities as well as their academic performance will influence their lives positively in the future; our Office supports the foundation of student societies and their activities. In the 2018-2019 academic year; approximately 400 organizations including concerts, exhibitions, festivals, conferences, seminars, plays and excursions were held by the student associations.

Furthermore, in the 2018-2019 Academic Year, many activities such as the 13th METU NCC Theater Festival, 12th International Food Festival, 12th METU NCC Horror Night, 9th Performing Arts Festival, Alumni on Campus 7, mART Fest, 6th Traditional Folklore Festival, 3rd Traditional Turkish Art Music Choir Concert and 12th METU NCC Spring Festival were performed successfully by the student associations.

How can I join a student association?

In order to attend associations’ activities superintended by the academic adviser and supervised via the decisions made by the executive board of member students, one should apply to the societies or Social and Cultural Affairs and fill out a membership form.
