Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Prescott provides a comprehensive support system for clubs and organizations that promote student achievement.
Joining one of these many groups is a great way for students to become active within the University and enhance personal growth. More than 100 organizations supported by the Office of Student Activities provide students with opportunities to explore unique interests and develop leadership skills.
The Office of Student Activities fosters five core values:
To encourage success, the Office of Student Activities designs programs to promote resources available to students. One such program is Passport to ERAU, a six-week experience that connects students with resources and social entities both on and off campus. To participate in the program, students record progress on “passports” as they complete program activities designed to build a connection between the student and the University. Over six weeks, students collect “stamps” for their passport, which makes them eligible for prizes such as movie tickets, ERAU gear, electronics, and even free housing. At the end of the program, students turn in their passports and attend a grand prize drawing to celebrate. Participation in this program has been shown to improve student success, with participation linked to higher grade point averages. A survey of Fall 2013 first-year students found that 98 percent would recommend the Passport program to incoming students. Visit our Facebook page for the complete Passport schedule.
Latin for “Seize the Night,” Carpe Noctem is a late-night activity series sponsored by the Department of Housing and Residence Life and the Office of Student Activities. Events are held after 9 p.m. and are open to all Embry-Riddle students. Most programs are offered at no charge, but some may require a small fee paid in Eagle Dollars.

Want to play Xbox or PS3? How about some pool, shuffleboard, or arcade games? The Hunt Student Union offers a blend of activities, social spaces, student offices, and recreational equipment. Students can rent a video game and kick back with friends, check their mailboxes, and reserve a room for an organizational meeting.
The Eagle Leadership Series provides leadership training and opportunities to explore the broad field of leadership. The series, made possible through a partnership between the Office of Student Activities and the Ignite Program, includes workshops designed to ignite students’ inner passion for leadership while building on the personal leadership skills students already possess.
Students who participate in the program receive priority consideration for volunteer leadership opportunities with the Office of Student Activities and across campus. All participants who complete the series by attending at least six workshops will be awarded Eagle Leader Medals during the spring Leadership Ceremony.
