How Many Jiu Jitsu Clubs are there in Univeristies?

I am doing a research/project for my grad program. Could you guys just mention here the universities you think that offers a BJJ club?

Thank you.

I recall evergreen State University had a Ki society Gentle Aikido club on campus, but in spite of wearing the skirts, got shut down for being "too violent".

(I kid)

But I just remembered that the University of Pittsburgh has an active BJJ club.

CSU Northridge, USC, UC Irvine. My friend used to run the one in Creighton (Omaha.) I had one student transfer to attend the bjj club at Cornell and one to University of Chicago.

If I had to guess, I think most larger universities have a bjj club of some sort.

Princeton University hosts an invitational tournament every year. Last year they had Princeton, TCNJ, Rutgers, Uconn, and Cornell there. 


I also know that Central Florida has a club (someone else mentioned that as well). Syracuse has something too

We had a club at Michigan (Ann Arbor) when I was there but I don't know if it still exists.
