ALPFA is a national organization that has traditionally been able to connect and inspire the next generation of Latino leaders, but ALPFA’s focus is to advance the professional development of its members. As students embark on their quest to choose a career and enhance their marketability to potential employers, ALPFA is a powerful ally to help you earn that distinction. Join the ALPFAmilia!

The Black Student Union was recreated at Rosemont College in 2016. Since then we have focused on the building of the black community, but membership is by no means limited to just the black community.
In this organization, foster a fun and safe environment that engages our students in a discussion on issues affecting us and the surrounding communities. We hope to educate our members then challenge them to take action, whether it be internal or external. We hope to lead by example and push students to be better than their best. We hope to show past generations that we will take charge of our future, dismantle the negative stereotypes, build and secure our sense of community, and influence the world.
Our vision for BSU is to serve the Rosemont Campus with cultural, educational, and social initiatives as we aim to build leaders, promote unity and contribute to student success. That is why our theme this year is S.T.R.I.V.E., which stands for “Service, Tenacity, Reflection, Intellect, Virtue, & Excellence”. This was chosen because we want to show our students the value of serving those around us, being tenacious about our dreams until it becomes our reality and the importance of reflecting on our history as well as past failures and successes.
We also hope students grow in their personal life and leave Rosemont as integral and virtuous people. We believe these are the keys to excellence and hope that students will find value in these six words and truth in our message.
Book Club is a group centered around a love of literature. Through monthly meetings and movie nights the club members discusses the book for that month and the differences in film adaptations if available.
Through community fundraisers and book drives the club tries to do its part to enhance literacy in the greater Philadelphia area. All Rosemont students are welcome to attend events put on by the book club.
In conjunction with the Business Department, students are given the opportunity to network with alumni and professional connections while building necessary skills and knowledge associated to business management. Open to ALL Majors.

The Petaltones is Rosemont College's rock and roll/jazz/funk/gospel/show tune/R&B/and sometimes country musical combo.
Our motto is "We suffer for our music. Now it's your turn." We get together to learn new songs every year and hold a performance for the College community every April in association with Founder's Week. Our mission is simple: Anyone who has an interest in musical performance is invited to come. We do not hold auditions, so anyone with any degree of talent is welcome. And hopefully as you can see from this paragraph, we don't take ourselves too seriously. (Well, a little seriously.)
Over the years, we have performed more than 100 tunes (never one repeated) and have featured over thirty singers from the student body. We pride ourselves on having fun and putting out the best sound we possibly can. We see ourselves as an embodiment of the College's mission to create "a community of learners" who exhibit the "joy of learning."
The Pre-Health Club is devoted to providing resources to students that will facilitate a successful career in healthcare. The organization strongly believes that healthcare is a universal humanitarian issue and therefore, a global concern.

The Rosemont Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (RSAAC) is an organization whose main objective is to create a gateway for student-athletes of the college to take part in researching, planning, and executing ways to actively serve the surrounding community. It also stands as a voice for any feedback any student-athlete may have for the institution.
Not only does the organization look to serve the internal Rosemont College community, it also focuses heavily on ways to connect with and serve the surrounding "Main Line" area. By being active members in these communities, student-athletes are able to develop a sense of influence, which in turn develops them as leaders.
