Student Clubs And Disabled Students Unlimited (DSU)

Student activities, government and club functions are rewarding opportunities for involvement and enrichment. A wide variety of clubs offer opportunities for students to come together to pursue common interests. Check with Student Activities at http://www.deanza.edu/clubs/

The Disabled Students Unlimited (DSU) club is an active student advocacy and activity club. It meets regularly and sponsors the following types of activities:
  • Scholarships
  • Emergency book grants
  • Cap and gown grants
It also underwrites numerous social activities and events enjoyed by the entire DSPS Division, such as:
  • Spring Celebration for students receiving degrees and transfers
  • APE Holiday Party
  • Summer ice cream party
  • Spring APE bar-b-que

Social events are planned on a quarterly basis. These have included activities such as kayaking, restaurant evenings, ball games, theater visits, museum days. Occasionally, the group plans a major overnight trip for its members. Past trips have included camping at state parks, a train ride to historical Sacramento, an overnight excursion to Santa Rosa and a visit to the Wild Animal Park.

Funds for these activities typically come from student fees through the the De Anza Student Body (DASB) and are raised by club members who participate in a variety of fund-raising activities.
