Student Clubs at ASU
The Associated Student & Faculty Senate are advocates for the ASU student clubs & organization. Everyone can find, or even create, their own club here at Adams State.
Adams Atoms Chemistry Club
Our organization allows students to connect with other chemistry, biochemistry, and other science majors. It also allows students to be a part of a great organization and allows students to be active on their university campus.
For students that actively participate in the club, they are invited to
join the rest of the chemistry club to the American Chemistry Society
conference. At the American Chemistry Society conference, undergraduate
students can interact with other undergraduate students from
universities across the U.S. Also while at the conference, students
will have the opportunity to present their research, look into new
research ideas, and interact with graduate school/professional school
An example of a fundraiser that the Adams Atoms Chemistry Club specifically does is the Periodic Table of Cupcakes. A community event that Adams Atoms specifically helps with is the hands on demonstrations part of the chemistry department's annual magic show.
Art League gives students the opportunity to learn from professional artists as well as tour galleries to gain skills like professionalism in displaying work, factors to consider when pricing, and how to get started in your field after college.
We also run sales to give students the skills to handle customers and to organize inventory/sales sheets. There are opportunities for leadership roles through either maintaining an officer position or taking responsibility for a specific Art League project.
We are open to students of any major who are interested in art. Art League participates in a wide range of events throughout the year:
We are involved in all events during homecoming week including the medicine show and parade. During Halloween we set up and operate a haunted house, which raises money for the club as well as starts our canned food drive for La Puente. After we gather cans throughout the beginning of November, the club builds a canned food sculpture in the sub before we deliver them. In December we have Christmas sales both on and off campus, then a week of sales on campus for Valentine's day, and at least one sale for St. Patrick's day.
We also have trips to explore museums, art districts, studios, etc... as well as a bigger trip either in the spring or during the summer to a farther destination than the valley or northern New Mexico.
We do fundraising every week along with certain trips every now and then pertaining to the geo-sciences.
You do not have to be a Geo-Major to be in the club, we welcome anyone who is interested!

Psi Chi/ Psychology Club
Psi Chi/ Psychology Club is an active organization that volunteers, participates, and contributes to the campus and local community, for example, we sponsor speakers from other institutions to come and publicly speak to students to gain knowledge of possible career paths.
We conduct annual fundraisers to lessen the load of our financial request from AS&F to attend the Rocky Mountain Psychological Association Conference (RMPA). Our diverse collection of students pull together to influence and enhance the Adams State University experience.
The purpose of Psi Chi/ Psychology Club is to allow Adams State University students interested in the field of psychology to meet and participate in psychology related activities. Psi Chi/ Psychology Club usually appeals to social science majors, although our doors are open to everyone. We are extremely happy to have members from any major.
We are involved campus activities that increase retention and promote campus morale. Participation in Homecoming week, ASU Cares, Chile Cookoff, and other activities are encouraged, although not required to be a member.
We also participate in private fundraisers to help with the annual conference. Rocky Mountain Psychological Association Conference (RMPA) is our annual event to attend. We attend, present, and discuss research oriented events, as well as workshops geared at higher education.
El Parnaso Spanish Club
Our club was originally founded in November, 1928, and called "Las Voces Del Valle."
In 1931, the name was changed to "El Parnaso Club", a name from a literary organization of which Miguel de Cervantes (author of Don Quixote) was once a member.
