Supporting Montana Tech Student Clubs!

Montana Tech has a rich community of student clubs. These groups reflect academic interests, hobbies, philanthropic causes, athletics, music, drama, religion, cultural affiliations and career goals. Many of these organizations offer experiences that enhance students’ educational experience while at Montana Tech and provide professional experience and networking to ease their transition into their careers after graduation.

Below is a sampling of our Montana Tech clubs and a brief look at their mission. All of the clubs listed on this page are currently raising funds to support their clubs and thank you for investing in their student experience. 

We will be adding additional clubs through 4 pm MST on 9/8/21. If you are interested in having your club featured please contact Shannon Panisko at spanisko@mtech.edu.
