The Psychology Club welcomes all health-related majors and minors in order for everyone to have a place at Husson University. As of right now we have three elementary education majors in our club and about five to six psychology majors. The Psychology Club wishes to advance the knowledge that the public has about the psychology field and all the many paths to which it can lead. We are quite active on campus and have been established for over three years. We play a good part in student life here on campus. We have held movie nights, annual dinners, open mic nights, and a graduating seminar, as well as many other events. We look forward to seeing or hearing from anyone who is interested in joining us for some fun at Husson University.
Formerly A GBLT on RYE (“Allies, Gay, Bisexuals, Lesbians and Trans* on Real Youth Education”) is Husson/NESCom’s queer alliance. The club began in the fall of 2009 to provide social support for students across the spectrum of sexual orientations and gender identities. Our primary purpose is to provide support for students, education, and outreach to the campus community, offer information about political action relating to human rights and equality, and to have fun doing all of that! We sponsor Husson Pride Week every Spring. Anyone is welcome, regardless of if you are gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, transvestite, or intersex…as well as straight, asexual, or cisgender - or simply questioning.”
Running Club unites everyone who loves to run here at Husson (short or long distances, track or XC) into one group. Our goal is to promote running on and off campus in groups in an attempt to stay in shape and have fun. We also hope to show the school that there are enough people actively interested in running so that, when the funds are available, it will be that much easier to start a team. As most of you probably know, it is much easier and far more motivating to run in groups than it is to try and run (stay in shape) by yourself. Running Club meets four or five times a week to run various distances both on and off campus. Everyone is welcome no matter their experience or physique. So, come join us!
Any student may join, whether he or she goes to Husson or NESCom. Writing for the paper gives one the opportunity to participate in more events, including those that can qualify for community service and fine arts credits. We have a variety of fundraising events, the biggest of which is advertisements. We also sponsor on-campus activities. Recently, we sponsored Easter egg decorating and have plans to sponsor a book drive to improve our campus library.
We, the students of Husson University, in order to increase student influence in the college community and to do whatever is necessary and proper to promote the betterment of Husson University and to protect and insure student rights, do hereby establish the Husson University Student Government. We are elected representatives of the student body. We talk about student issues and make changes as necessary to events, schedules, and our Constitution. We plan and run events on campus and conduct meetings with Senate members. We are the voice of commuters, residents, traditional, non-traditional, and NESCom students. Between the Senate and Executive Board members, we ensure that the students have a voice and they have enrichment.
Vision & Purpose: Supported by its Five Pillars of Harmony, the SUPC will serve as an organization that fosters students’ development through diversity and cultural competence. The SUPC strives toward bringing to light issues concerning people of color and challenges students to become more informed and more dynamic members of the campus and community. By upholding it’s Five Pillars of Harmony: Self-Awareness, Social Awareness, Political Awareness, Leadership, and Community Service; SUPC strives to not only enhance the student experience at Husson, but to also provide supplemental knowledge that is as constructive and helpful as our classroom curriculums. The mission of the SUPC is to strengthen awareness and knowledge within the context of social identity development and awareness; to enable all students to become more active proponents of their own education, life choices, and growth; and to expound upon the opportunities and possibilities for students to become agents of positive change for themselves, for our campus, and for our community.
Another resource on campus is the Husson University Student Veterans Association (SVA) which is funded by part of the comprehensive fee through the Student Government. Students are given the opportunity to perform community service and satisfy their extra curricular activity requirements. Students in this group fundraise, participate in Open House, participate in the Veterans Day parade, perform community service, and have bi-weekly meetings. Students who may be interested in joining this group can contact Jan Mudge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Tech club is involved in numerous technological activities. They welcome everyone who takes an interest in today's advancing technology. They currently have several servers for students. These servers are used for educational purposes, and for experimental services for the student body (such as dedicated gaming servers). The Tech club is currently working to build new servers to enhance student life. They are also working on a mock network to fully realize the work involved in maintaining a system like one found on the Husson campus. They work inside the club share and enhance their technical knowledge with one another and supplement their education from outside the classroom. The Tech Club is also involved with charity and community service around the Bangor area.
WHSN 89.3 FM is the campus radio station. NESCom students broadcast on-air the latest and greatest alternative rock music to the Bangor area. The station also does live remotes on campus throughout the school year. They are also a live sponsor of certain events like Open Mic Nights held in the Furman Student Center.
