All students interested in families and children, majoring or minoring in HDFS are invited to join this organization. The HDFS Club helps students explore opportunities by providing occasions for interaction with a variety of professionals, faculty members and career advisors. This organization enhances a student’s college experience through contact with other students who have similar interests.
The Early Childhood Education club was founded during the Fall 2005 semester. Students majoring in HDFS with an option in Early Childhood Education are encouraged to join. The club’s purpose is to provide opportunities for students to interact with others pursuing early childhood certification and to further professional growth as teachers of young children.
Students pursuing a career as a Family and Consumer Sciences public school teacher or County Cooperative Extension Service Educator will gain valuable pre-professional experiences as members of the Family and Consumer Sciences Education Club. Throughout the year members can develop leadership skills, pursue scholarship opportunities, network with professionals in the field, and participate in 4-H and FCCLA activities at the local, regional, state and national levels. They also assist with the summer Family and Consumer Sciences Education Academy held for secondary students planning to pursue a career in this field.
