This organization’s objectives are to familiarize the student body with local, state, national, and international political issues. It provides a vehicle for understanding the political process in the United States and abroad on all levels. The purpose of the club is two fold: to develop theories of common interest in the field through guest speakers and to exchange opinions, ideas, and theories on various issues. The club also develops students’ public speaking and problem-solving abilities and improves their knowledge of general world issues to prepare them for Model United Nations Conferences.

Psychology Club FB 
This club will serve to create a setting in which students who are interested in psychology can discuss current findings in the field, share new topics of research, and learn about further education and opportunities pertaining to psychology. 

Queer Student Union FB TW IG 
QSU reaches out to unite the MCLA community as a whole by providing support and resources for gay, lesbian, bisexual, asexual, pansexual, transgender, intersex, gender non-conforming and/or questioning (hereafter referred to as queer as an umbrella term) which addresses the needs and concerns of the queer student community on campus. 

Radiology Club  
The purpose of Radiology Club is to further students’ knowledge of the radiology field. Opportunities include all aspects of diagnostic imaging, understanding the challenges of the field, and continuing education about the field outside the classroom.
