Clubs and Activities

Students at UHS have the opportunity to pursue their passions and gather with other students and adults for activities and discussions based on these interests. The daily schedule was designed to allow students time to meet. Every year, students invent new clubs and have fun trying out new things.

During a typical lunchtime period you might expect to find:

  • The Devil's Advocate, the school newspaper, choosing the next issue's headline
  • Students for Women's Equality and Rights Affinity Club
  • Medical Club
  • Dance Dance Revolution Club
  • Financial Aid Affinity Space
  • Black Student Union
  • VOX Art Publication
  • Men's Group
  • Ocean Club
  • Interfaith Club
  • Mental Health Coalition
  • Toast Club (food not speech)

On a larger scale, students are encouraged to take initiative to develop all-school activities that promote fun and provide a change of pace. For example, every spring student leaders organize the UHS Olympics, where teams with members from each grade level compete in games like tug-of-war, a greased watermelon relay, and an obstacle course. We believe that the process of empowering students to create meaningful—and fun!—events provides them with an opportunity to demonstrate responsibility and take ownership over positively influencing school culture.
