There are so many other types of clubs on campus! Whether you want to be in Model UN or give tours, there are many opportunities available.
A Place to Talk
A PLACE TO TALK is student-to-student peer listening for the Hopkins community. We provide a cozy environment for anyone to discuss anything, from everyday frustrations to serious concerns. Peer listeners are undergraduate students who have been trained to listen and respond without giving advice. We’ll help you to explore your thoughts and feelings and come to your own solutions. All talks and visits to APTT are always confidential.

Dance Marathon is a student group that plans and hosts the annual Johns Hopkins University Dance Marathon, which raises funds for the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.

The team consists of the executive board, which manages the event, moralers who keep spirit up on the night of the event, morale captains who lead the moralers, and last but not least, the dancers, which are teams of students who raise money and then remain on their feet for the entire event.

Mock Trial is a fun way to gain courtroom experience while brushing up on your public speaking and performance skills. Students prepare a mock, or fake, trial case (alternating each year between civil and criminal charges) and then act as witnesses and attorneys for the defense or prosecution. The Hopkins Mock Trial team is student-run and team-oriented. Students collaborate to build attorney-witness rapport, apply the rules of evidence, and discuss case theories. No prior experience is necessary, but being a competitive member does require a significant committment both in terms of practice hours and a determination to succeed.

The goal of the Multicultural Student Volunteers (MSV) is to assist in fostering and sustaining diversity at Johns Hopkins.
