HDFS Student Clubs
Family FinanceThe purpose of the Family Finance Club is to provide majors and other interested students opportunities for leadership, service, and social interaction. The club usually has two activities as well as opening and closing socials.
The Gerontology Club is run by the Student Gerontology Association (SGA). The SGA is a student service and professional development organization, run by all the students who are currently enrolled in the Gerontology Certificate Program. Dr. Yin Liu serves as the faculty advisor for SGA.
The SGA serves two general purposes. First, it helps the professional development in jobs in aging where club members get to choose an activity once a semester on things they would like to learn about or get trained on. Second, it helps with volunteer hours required by the Gerontology Certificate Program. Each member needs to complete 10 hours of club-related activity with the SGA. One should plan on completing at least 5 hours of club-related activity over 2 semesters. However members can certainly participate in more than that! The goal is one service project a month. If one is a distance student or is otherwise not able to participate in club activities, she/he is required to complete 10 hours of community service in the area of gerontology in her/his community, and submit her/his hours of activity to the current SGA president.
