Catalog and Student Handbook

Students are encouraged to participate in one or more of the active clubs and organizations. Students are also encouraged to initiate new clubs. Clubs and activity programming allow students to participate in educational, social, and leadership activities. Participation in clubs and activities contributes to and enhances the total learning experience. Some of the activities have included cultural festivals/fairs, musical presentations, performers, plays, movies, lecturers, trips to events/museums, etc. College faculty and staff serve as advisors to student clubs.
