Student Clubs at South Hills
The educational experience at South Hills School of Business & Technology isn't just about what takes place in the classroom. While our students earn their specialized associate degrees, they can also pursue personal and academic goals, discover new interests, refine their skills, and build lifelong friendships by joining the Student Clubs at South Hills. Students may request membership from their campus Student Services team. (Clubs listed below are available at both South Hills campuses unless otherwise noted.)
