Honor Societies & Clubs

Participate in one of these renowned organizations during your years at Cedar Crest.

Learning shouldn’t be limited to the classroom. Explore your interests, take part in exciting activities and gain valuable hands-on experience by joining one or more of the organizations mentioned below. The groups arrange for speakers, panels and networking opportunities. Field trips to companies or to major northeast cities are a regular feature. Students from throughout the college are welcomed to join the clubs listed below.

 

Accounting Club

The Accounting Club provides networking opportunities for students, faculty and professionals in the field of accounting. The group informs members about different career opportunities in accounting and assists students in reaching their career goals through mentoring. Students also discuss issues related to the profession.

Investment Club

The Investment Club manages a stock portfolio worth over $55,000. The portfolio (originally worth $25,000) was donated to the College so that students could learn to analyze companies and make investment decisions through hands-on experience. Since individuals have increasing responsibility for managing their own pensions, they need to understand the stock market and how to select stocks for investment. The Investment Club, which is open to all students, provides the perfect opportunity. The Club also takes field trips to Wall Street, participates in educational seminars at the New York Stock Exchange, and brings speakers from the world of finance to campus to conduct workshops.

Marketing Club

The Marketing Club at Cedar Crest College is passionate about marketing, charity work and planning activities that get the College community involved. The charity Made for Water, Made for Love, has been supported by the Marketing Club in the past. Currently, club members are working on developing a Creativity Day to take place during the spring semester, as well as a collaboration activity with the Accounting Club and Investment Club. The Cedar Crest Marketing Club is currently applying for membership to the American Marketing Association. As a member, you may also participate in marketing-related club trips to such places as King of Prussia Mall. All students are welcome to join, whether they are marketing majors or not.
