Alice Lloyd College

Student Activities, Clubs and Organizations

Activities 2

Even though ALC occupies a small campus, we offer a large variety of activities in which our students may participate. Whatever your passion – be it athletics, the performing arts, community service, student government, spirituality, intellectual pursuits, or creative expression – we have something for you.  

Many of our departments have created clubs and honor societies, most of which have a keen interest in carrying out some kind of community service. If you have a specific interest, check out the College’s departments and programs to find out more about what is available to you.  

A number of our clubs, organizations, and activities are student-generated, so there is always the possibility that something new will come along in which you can focus your free time and energy. Here we have compiled a list of the aspects of student life that you will most often encounter at ALC. If you happen not to find one of your passions or interests represented in our list, make a note of it and bring that idea with you to campus. We’d love to hear it!

Voices of Appalachia

VOA - Copy

Voices of Appalachia

Members of the College’s choir, Voices of Appalachia, are selected each year by the choir director. The choir is composed of a variable number of students with a faculty director and an accompanist. The choir tours each spring, traveling to communities throughout the United States, and presents a concert for the campus each Christmas and in April. Student members rehearse two days each week throughout the school year.

On their tours, choir members quickly discover that audiences share their love of the Appalachian Mountains. Conveyed are the deep feelings that mountain people have of their beautiful green-forested mountains, their families, their joys and sorrows.The tours are an invaluable educational experience. Students grow personally from living and working together as a group. They benefit from a sense of accomplishment and a joy in sharing with newfound friends.

Although few choir members have had formal musical training, critics frequently comment on the beautiful harmonies, fresh approach and strong enthusiasm. The unique style of the “Voices” is indigenous to the mountains and dates back to pre-Elizabethan times, as do many of their songs.
