Burke helps students to be analytical, original, independent, committed, and persuasive - powerful skills for making a difference in the world. At the same time, we want students to join together as a community and indulge their passions, whether it be for art, movies, religion or social justice.
Students at Burke can choose from more than 30 clubs, everything from Environmental Action to Ping Pong. Each club has a faculty sponsor and meets once a cycle (7 days).
Burke also has a Student Activities Committee as well as the Leadership Program. Students plan dances, fundraisers and assemblies and are one of the reasons why visitors note that Burke has such a vibrant and welcoming community!
