"Co Nie Co" Club
The "CO NIE CO" student club came into being over forty five years ago. Over the time, it has been involved in organizing cultural occasions and providing entertainment for our students and those from other schools in the city. The pride of the club is "Schodki" /"The Stairs"/, a cabaret that presents scenes from student life in a witty and humorous way. New shows are produced and performed three times a year. Lately, the group has been invited several times to give guest performances in "Gwint", a student club at Bialystok Polytechnic, and other places as well.
If you feel like having some fun after a hard week's work, a Friday night out at the disco could be a good idea. The music there will surely satisfy everyone's tastes and you can have a great time spontaneously joining those on the dance floor.
Apart from that, there is a mini debating film club, organizing Saturday projections of latest releases and cult movies.

"Herculesy" Club
The "Herkulesy" Club has a tradition as long as forty years. Throughout this time, it has enjoyed enormous popularity with students of all higher schools in the city.
The club has undergone renovation recently. The dominating colours are now warm, friendly orange with contrasting navy blue. The club is a place where everybody will find something for themselves. House, hip hop, rock and dance music is played there by the best Polish DJs. The service is superb.

Having been listened to since 1951, our radio is almost as old as the University and is the oldest student radio organization in Poland.
Radio broadcasts are fully prepared by students and aired Monday through Thursday between 7 ? 10 p.m. The materials include: stories, interviews, talks and coverage of special events.
At lunch time, students can enjoy their meals in the canteen listening to a mix of the best Polish and foreign hits alternating with current announcements from students' organizations and school authorities.
