Student Life

Intramural and Recreational Activities

Intramural and recreational activities represent a broad selection of individual and team sports. Club sports are also available. Students must try out, be prepared to play at much higher levels of competition and travel to games outside the College. Opportunities are available for students to participate in all phases of the intramural program, including planning and organizing, competing and officiating.

Student Government

Each campus has a Student Government Association. These groups provide guidance and direction to the student body, develop student programs and activities, promote student involvement, develop positive working relationships and provide students with opportunities to develop and exercise leadership skills. Contact the campus Student Activities office for more information.

Student Organizations and Clubs

The College offers assistance in the formation and official recognition of clubs and other organizations of students and faculty who have interests in common. There are well-defined procedures available through the Student Activities office for the establishment and sanctioning of a student club or organization.

To hold office in a student organization, a student must have a minimum 2.0 grade point average (GPA) at the beginning of the tenure of office and must achieve a minimum 2.0 GPA during each term in office. Clubs and organizations may have individual membership requirements; students can visit any campus Student Activities Office to acquire specific club requirements.
