Hop Clubs

At Hopkins, we offer a number of ways for students to connect and engage with one another outside of their formal, academic program.  It is so important, even in this time of separation, to form intentional communities for support and fun!  Our summer student clubs give you an opportunity to connect with other students from around the world.

Hop Clubs
Summer at Hopkins offers a variety of virtual student clubs that are designed to appeal to a wide audience. HOP clubs are a great way to connect with students from across the country and the world and build your resume. Live events will be hosted by student leaders and an assigned a JHU staff member. Students enrolled in any Hop online program can participate.
