Community Social Clubs
TSC encourages students to try a social club that might be of interest after graduation.
Coffee House is one of the offerings from the SPI program at the Iowa City Rec Center. Staff helps students with learning how to bus to the activity, and helps with the transition of becoming independent at this club. The club's goal is to work towards independence in leisure activity. The club meets for drop-in activities and monthly trips or special programs. It meets Wednesdays, 2-3:30 pm, so students are responsible for their own transportation home. Annual Membership is $14, paid in January. Look in the Iowa City Recreation Activity Guide for registration information.
Uptown Bill's is an agency that strives to nurture and encourage individuals with disabilities. Game club meets Fridays, 1-4 pm. Members play board games and cards.
