Student Organizations Get Involved

You have many organizations, groups and programs in the college that can enrich your educational and social experience.

Getting involved with a student group is a good way to learn more about yourself, give back to the community and have fun with friends.


How to get involved...

It’s up to you. But we think you’ll be glad you asked about student organizations and inquired about how you can get involved.  Talk with other students, and seek out the organizations on social media.  Also be sure to read the college’s biweekly e-newsletter, sketchbook, for news from our student groups.
