Student Clubs

Get the most out of your college experience by joining a club. SPC offers dozens of clubs that can help you broaden your horizons, pursue your passions and make lifelong friends. Browse and join student clubs and organizations at TitanConnect.Spcollege.edu

How to start a club

  1. Gather five or more fellow students who share your interest and meet with a Student Life and Leadership Coordinator.
  2. Visit the Student Life and Leadership office on your campus to complete the form to provide your Statement of Purpose, list your charter members and propose an advisor. (The advisor can be a full-time or adjunct faculty member or non-faculty career employee.)
  3. Final approval of all organizations rests with the college administration. Once chartered, the organization becomes a recognized group on campus and is subject to all policies, privileges and regulations of the college.
