Are you searching for a way to develop your leadership and interpersonal communication skills? Look no further than Student Activities Office (SAO).
The SAO currently houses over twenty clubs virtually this fall and still has leadership positions available, waiting to be filled by an ambitious Ocelots.
“As a two-year college, with a lot of turnover due to graduation and transfer, we are always looking to work with new students who will work with the current officers and become leaders of the existing groups and form new ones,” states Student Activities Director, Todd Stowell. “Some of the clubs that have opportunities available include Project Playhem, International Student Organization and more.”
Students that are interested in becoming leaders must be enrolled for a minimum of 3 credits and are also required to have a minimum 2.0 GPA. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, interested and potential applicants should be aware that all club meetings will be held via Zoom session until further notice. The determined dates and times of those meetings will vary based upon the availability of club leaders and members.
“The benefits for the leaders and members of the organizations is to network with like-minded individuals on and off campus,” Stowell commented. “These are great resume builders and turn out to help with transfer scholarships as well just to name a few benefits to joining or building a group.”
Anyone interested in forming a new club is more than welcome to do so by undergoing a petition process, determination of the potential group’s mission and three planned goals that will help to fulfill that purpose.
In addition to joining or starting a club on campus, students will also have the chance to win an iPad or AirPods at the conclusion of the fall semester. This can be achieved by actively attending group meetings and earning one entry per visit. Therefore, the more involved, the more likely to become prize winners.
Current clubs offered include Amnesty International, Art Club, Asian Student Association, Black Student Union, Business Club, Christian Challenge, Computer Graphics Technology Club, Engineering Club, Health Information Technology Club, Math & Physics Club, Early Childhood/Special Education Student Educators, Native American Club, Nutrition for Health and Wellness, Otaku Anime Club, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, Project Playhem Gaming Club, Safe Place, Student Activities Board and The Schoolcraft Connection Newspaper.
