Life outside of class on the Marshall B. Ketchum University campus can be as rich and fulfilling as you want it to be, thanks to our stimulating array of co-curricular clubs, associations and student activities. Each offers a unique environment for personal and professional growth.
On-Campus Student Achievement Center
Dr. Lorraine Voorhees Student Achievement Center Resource Room
We founded the Student Achievement Center (SAC) to help our talented, high-achieving students maximize their learning potential. SAC events and services are advertised via campus flyers, social media pages, MBKU email and online MBKU student dashboard.
The SAC resource room is your one-stop-shop for a quiet place to study, meet with a tutor/Peer Advisor/study group, and/or grab a cup of coffee. The resource room has a variety of personal and professional reading material, a large whiteboard, device charging station, and a large, comfy bean bag chair if you simply need a short power nap.
MBKU Student Association
Campus involvement is ingrained as part of the student culture at MBKU. Each class is represented by an annually-elected class cabinet along with Student Association officers (president, secretary, treasurer and committees) to represent the student body. Elections occur each spring – not including first-year class cabinet elections that take place each fall.
Every student is a member of the Student Association and also a member of the national professional organization of the respective Program’s choice. Optometry students are members of AOSA, PA students are members of AAPA and Pharmacy students are members of APhA-ASP. The Student Association umbrella also includes all other student organizations and clubs (the list grows every year!):
