Student Life and Leadership

From our Welcome Back events to the annual picnic in the park with American Stage Theatre, SPC Downtown fills each term with social, cultural, wellness, and education programs. Students can apply their leadership skills by joining SGA, who assist in planning and implementing student activities.

SPC Downtown also offers a student discount program for local shopping and dining. Just show an SPC Downtown ID card to participating vendors and receive discounts on food, clothing, museum tickets and other great services.


Campus Events

Get involved and participate in great activities such as the Red Ribbon Week event. Watch some of the great stories and discussions that were shared at the event.


Do you want to make an impact on and off campus? How about gaining leadership skills along with marketing and public relations experience? Then you may want to consider becoming a member of SGA. This group of students meets to discuss programs and events, leadership development, and keys to success at SPC. It's a chance to meet new friends, have fun and make a difference Downtown.

The SGA office is located in DC225. Stop by and meet your SGA officers. For more information about student life, contact:
