Faculty and department societies

If you're interested in becoming more involved with your faculty or department, take a look to see if they're listed or ask around your department office. It's a great way to become an advocate for your program of study, help out with events, and meet other students.

Sports clubs

Dal also offers the opportunity to take part in a variety of sport clubs at different levels of competition. There are over 30 different clubs to choose from: everything from rugby, football, field hockey, and lacrosse, to cheerleading, fencing, ultimate frisbee, and squash. For more information about which clubs are offered and how to participate, visit the Athletics and Recreation website.

There are also currently three club sport teams at the Agricultural Campus: cross country, equestrian, and golf.
