DUSA supports students in many ways, from academic to social to real-world experiences.
One of the best ways to get involved at Deakin is to join a DUSA club. There are over 120 clubs to choose from and they are based across our campuses. Here are 10 that you might be interested in joining this trimester.
Do you enjoy discussing issues, sharing your opinion and public speaking? Join the Deakin Debating Society for the opportunity to attend university competitions, improve your communication skills and make friends!
Did you know that cheerleading is the fastest growing sport in Australia? Not only is cheerleading a fantastic opportunity to try something new and exciting, it is a challenging, fun and physically demanding sport for men and women. The Club has multiple levels, styles and teams, and performs and competes at a range of events.
The Deakin Internationals Club is a great way for international students to experience Australian culture, and for local students to make friends from around the world. Get involved in activities such as cultural nights, footy trips and laser tag.
If you’re into soccer, join the Deakin Ducks! They currently field 5 men’s teams and 2 women’s team in the Football Federation Victoria Geelong Region competition.
Basically a group of nerds who like to read and write, Deakin Writers runs the student magazine Worldly. Join the club to make friends in the publishing community, access writing opportunities and contribute to the publication.
A game of dodgeball is guaranteed to take the stress out of uni life! Join DODGE for weekly games and fun social activities.
Whether you’re queer or queer at heart, Deakin Pride organises social events for LGBTIQI+ identifying people and allies. Join a safe, politically-neutral space, make friends and access support.
The Deakin Boardriders Club is for everyone who loves surfing. All levels welcome, even beginners. Come share the stoke!
If you love plays, musical theatre and the arts, join a community that adores the stage and get involved in performances and events. They’re putting on a production of The Crucible in August.
Play mixed indoor netball and attend social gatherings at our Warrnambool campus.
