Capital Community College offers students the opportunity to become actively involved on campus by participating in student-run clubs and organizations. Through involvement in co-curricular activities, students gain leadership skills, develop new interests and enjoy the social aspects that participation in student activities affords.
Membership in student clubs and organizations is open to all enrolled students. Some are created from various disciplines and majors, such as the Construction Management Club or the Computer Club. Additional co-curricular activities develop out of specific interests and needs and derive their goals and objectives from the consensus of the membership, such as The Black Student Union, The International Club, LASA (Latin American Student Association), The Martial Arts Club, and Capital Cares (Bible Club).
Other organizations are chapters of national groups and include the following:
- M.A.L.E.S. (Men Achieving Leadership Excellence & Success) - Fosters inclusive professional and personal development opportunities to encourage and support civic engagement, academic achievement and social engagement of young men on campus and in their communities
- Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) - National honor society for two-year colleges that recognizes high scholastic achievement. PTK students must achieve a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.5 and maintain a GPA of 3.2.
Student government represents all Capital Community College students, and works to enhance student life and promote morale and a spirit of community among students, staff and faculty. The Student Senate establishes rules and regulations concerning student-sponsored activities and clubs. Student clubs, publications, and other co-curricular activities supported by the Student Senate and Student Activity Fund must adhere to the Policies and Procedures Manual and satisfy all published criteria.
