Meet the Clubs at Spring 2022 Club Day

It’s the beginning of the Spring 2022 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. The in-person event will take place in the first-floor lobby between the elevators and the Global Forum on this Wednesday, 19 January, from 1:45 to 2:45 p.m. The virtual club day will take place on Thursday.

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.
