Club List
We offer a number of different clubs from which to choose.

Foothill College Club List

Joining a campus club is a great way to enrich your academic experience at Foothill. There are clubs of all types on campus and they change periodically with the changing interests of the student body.

These organizations focus on student interests in career options, multicultural diversity, recreation, sports, crafts, politics, service and social events.

The active club list is updated weekly on OrgSync. Note: Clubs hibernate during the Summer Quarter.

Log on to OrgSync with your on-campus Student ID number and MyPortal log-in password to see the active club lists or get a hard copy of the active club list by visiting the Student Activities, Room 2009 in the Campus Center.

Start or Reactivate a Club

OBD steps

If there isn't a club that suits your needs, you can start a new club. Follow these steps on how to start a club at Foothill College.

  1. Fill out and submit Activation/ Reactivation Form on OrgSync under Studentlife in the Forms section.
  2. Acquire a faculty or staff advisor who is willing to attend all official club activities and events, and also oversee the club's account.
  3. Ask your club advisor to approve the Activation/ Reactivation Form once you made the submission on OrgSync. (When you fill out the form, there will be a section requesting the advisor’s email address .The advisor will get an e-mail notification once the form is submitted.)
  4. Obtain 5 Student ID numbers of interested Foothill students. The owners of the student ID numbers you enter should have paid off their student body fees and have stickers of the current quarter on their OwlCards. (These 5 students don't have to be part of the club, only have to agree that the club should exist.)
  5. Obtain signatures of OBD advisor/student activities specialist and the vice-president of OBD.
  6. Submit the Activation/Reactivation form and get approval from the advisor by 12:30 p.m. on a Monday during the first five weeks of the quarter.
  7. Make sure the appointed OBD Representative attends the OBD meeting to get OBD vote for your club’s activation or reactivation.
