Student Clubs

Joining a student organization at WCTC can help you to get the most out of your college experience by making professional contacts, meeting new people, making lifelong friends and learning more about your profession. Additionally, involvement in student organizations helps hone leadership, team building, decision-making, communication and problem-solving skills.

Many of WCTC's student organizations tie directly into a specific academic program area on campus. We also have several special interest organizations. Each organization has a staff or faculty advisor and student membership of 10 or more students. The Student Government Association provides financial support to the organizations through Student Activity Fees. Organization members identify all functions of their organization such as the constitution, programming, membership guidelines and participation in state and national activities.
