The Phoenix Club

The Phoenix Club, the official student organization of Hillenbrand Hall, serves the Hillenbrand community by providing residents and student members with opportunities to enhance their collegiate education through leadership development, representative government, and an assortment of fun social and educational activities. Some of these activities include orientation, carnivals, all hall cookouts, karaoke, intramurals, intra-hall competitions, and Grand Prix. We also invite performances from the Johari Dance Troup, Black Voices Of Inspiration, Crazy Monkeys Comedy Troup, HumanRITE, and an assortment of guest speakers and comedians.
