Student organizations in Nutrition, Dietetics, and Food Sciences are preparatory clubs focused on strengthening students' abilities and work experience for specific career opportunities. Students participate in skill building activities, socialize with students who share career interests, become involved with service projects and network with potential employers.
The Dietetic Student Association provides an opportunity for anyone interested in nutrition to network with students and professionals while learning about jobs and internships, earning hours towards program and internship application requirements, and participating in fun nutrition-related activities. The association also provides leadership and service opportunities on campus and in the community.

The goal of the Food Science Club is to assist in the development of our students professionally, academically, and personally. This is done through participation in events associated with IFT (the professional Institute of Food Technologists) as well as competing in product development competitions and College Bowl. We also work to spread our knowledge of the food industry to the general public through extension work and club activities.
The goal of the Nutrition Science Club is to promote good nutrition among individuals, families, and our community. The club offers opportunities for interested students to network with professionals in the field, share and discuss nutrition-related information, apply information in ways that improve the knowledge and health of community members, develop professional and leadership skills through service and outreach, and make new friends.
