The College supports activities outside the classroom that enrich, supplement, and provide a testing ground for classroom learning. These activities offer opportunities for social growth and for the development of values, appreciations, and insights. The faculty seeks to provide an environment in which students may become selfdisciplined, self-reliant, and socially sensitive individuals.
Students and faculty have the opportunity to become members of several clubs and organizations. They may participate in any College activity for which they are eligible. All student organizations have faculty sponsors and are responsible to the Vice Chancellor for Student Services. Rules for starting new clubs are available in the Enrollment Management Office. Secret societies are not allowed to be recognized organizations.
