There are political clubs for any political leaning, but some are more active than others. The College Republicans attract big-name speakers to lecture, while the College Democrats are kind of in a rut. There are also clubs available for Libertarian or Green Party-leaning students (sorry, no Reform Party club yet). Left-of-center groups attract a lot of attention with demonstrations and publicity stunts once in a while, like when a new war breaks out.
