Clubs & Organizations

These days, joining a student organization is about more than just fun.

In fact, according to the global employment website Monster.com, prospective employers want college graduates to demonstrate how active they’ve been on campus and in the community. Extracurricular activities offer the perfect opportunity for students to build leadership skills through community outreach, and to show hiring managers they’ve got what it takes to get the job done.

C-GCC offers a vibrant lineup of on-campus clubs, organizations, and societies to enhance the educational experience outside the classroom.

Students are invited to raise awareness, discover community, and engage in exciting events and opportunities by joining one today!

*What is the difference between a Recognized Student Organization and a Registered Student Organization?

A Recognized Student Organization can be awarded funding from student activity fee funds. Access is available to channels of advertisement such as bulletin boards,  promotion tables, and campus facilities. To become a Recognized Student Organization, a group needs to comply with all appropriate regulations, including the College’s  all-comers” policy.

A Registered Student Organization does not receive funding from the College but has access to college facilities to promote and conduct its activities. Compliance with the  college’s “all-comers” policy is not required. Groups must provide a stated purpose, complete a registration packet, submit officer names and contact information, create a constitution and bylaws, and enlist a faculty advisor. Groups do not need to maintain a minimum number of members.

Any new student organization or sports team wishing to become registered or recognized can contact the Student Activities Office for guidelines at 518.828.4181, extension 3380, or inquire using our web form.
