There are many campus clubs are maintained for students with special interests in areas such as science, sports, creative arts, business and industry, service and recreation. Club activities include business meetings, field trips, concerts, lectures, forums and social events. Through these activities, you may participate in and contribute to the life and interests of the college and the community. All clubs, except the Honor Scholarship Society (which requires specific qualifications), are open to all students. California law forbids secret fraternities and sororities in public community colleges.

Language and Culture Exchange
The Language and Culture Exchange is a unique opportunity to meet and converse with people of other language backgrounds and cultures. Students use Canvas to find and contact a partner. Once two students have mutually agreed to be language/culture partners, they decide the times/location that they will meet in person weekly to practice their language skills and/or learn about culture.
To participate, enroll in the section number listed on the main Language and Culture Exchange page.
