Fun, games—and a whole lot more

At Mount Ida, we believe that the knowledge you gain outside of the classroom is a critical part of your personal growth. We also believe in having a little fun. To that end, we offer a wide variety of student clubs and activities for you to enjoy. Whether you’re interested in meeting like-minded friends or learning something new, we’ve got something for you.
