6 CCAs to join for a fulfilling university experience

What are the 6 CCAs to join for a fulfilling university experience?

A single university’s CSAs offer a lot of diversity, but what if you want to go beyond that? You might think about joining clubs that aren’t officially CSAs, but you still have the same goals and values.

These clubs are called Constituent Clubs Associated (CCAs). CCAs are affiliated with a CSA, and they don’t have their own room or building on campus. Instead, they share the space of the CSA with them.

Here are 6 of the most popular CCAs at Singapore

1. CCA: Art and Culture Club

The A. CCA is the official CCA of the Arts House. It was founded in 2006, and it is the largest CCA in NUS with over 300 members. The A.CCA hosts various activities, including workshops, art exhibitions, plays, film screenings and concerts.

The most popular event is the annual Cultural Night held in August each year at the National Museum of Singapore (NMS). Over 30 CCAs participate in this night of art and culture to showcase their talents and spread their message to the public.

2. META: Mental Health Empowerment & Advocacy Club

The META CCA was founded in 2010 by a group of concerned students who wanted to start a platform for students to talk about mental health issues and share personal experiences openly without fear of judgement or stigmatisation.

They have had several workshops on mental health issues like depression, suicide prevention, eating disorders and self-harm. They also run a weekly Support Group for anyone suffering from mental health issues that is open to all students on campus regardless of their affiliations or residential colleges (RCs).

3. RAGS: Singapore University Rowing Club

RAG stands for “Rowing Action Group”. This club was founded in 2003, and it is one of the oldest CCAs in NUS. They host many rowing activities, including the inter-varsity regatta between Singapore and NUS, which is held annually.

RAG also hosts various regattas for local universities and schools. They organise training sessions for all members, as well as regular social events like BBQs, parties and team-building exercises.

The club encourages all members to take part in these events so that they can have a good time while building team spirit and working together towards a common goal.

4. ICON: Inclusive Community Outreach Network

The ICON CCA was founded in 2011 by students who wanted to do more than just help others by raising awareness about disability issues on campus. They wanted to give them an opportunity to participate actively with others in campus life and make friends with students from other CCAs as well as their CSA mates too!

ICON organises many workshops, talks and sports competitions with other clubs on campus to promote inclusion for people with disabilities, and it has been very successful so far! The ICON CCA has around 50 members.

5. NOMAD: Nomad Movement for A Better World

The NOMAD CCA was founded in 2010 by students who wanted to promote community service and give back to the community. The club’s activities include various fundraising projects, such as organising fun runs and helping out at charity events, donating food to the needy, or doing arts and crafts with underprivileged children at hospitals.

They also participate in the National Day Parade every year. NOMAD has about 70 members and they are divided into smaller groups called “bands” for different projects.

6. WAGGGS: World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts

The WAGGGS CCA was founded in 2013 by students who wanted to create a platform for all young women on campus to get together and discuss issues that affect them like sexism, gender inequality, bullying, body image issues etc., so that they can empower themselves to stand up against these problems.

They organise various talks on topics like feminism, mental health issues etc., as well as film screenings and games nights with other CCAs on campus! They have a lot of fun while learning more about themselves!

In conclusion, the CCA experience at NUS is not only about activities and socialising. It is also about giving back to the community and taking part in issues that affect us as students. So, do join a CCA if you have not done so yet!
