Fall 2021 Club Day: Meet the Clubs at Thunderbird

It’s the fall semester, and that means it’s time for Club Day at the Thunderbird School of Global Management!

This year, Club Day will take place both in person and online over the course of two days. On Wednesday, August 25th, students can meet club leaders in person from 1:45 to 2:30 p.m. in the kitchen at the Arizona Center. On Thursday, Club Day will take place via Zoom from 4 to 5 p.m. 

There are a lot of exciting opportunities to get involved at Thunderbird, and Das Tor wanted to take the opportunity to highlight some of the clubs at Thunderbird that will be participating in Club Day.

Of course, we have to feature ourselves! Das Tor is Thunderbird’s official student-run newspaper and multimedia organization. We publish articles every Monday and a podcast monthly.
