Get involved on campus

Clubs offer chance to stay connected outside of classes

If students are looking for a way to get involved on campus and meet new people, joining one of the many clubs that Pierce College offers is a great way to accomplish that.
On Oct. 2 and 3, Pierce held a club showcase to give students information about the clubs offered this year and how to start a new club.
Since fall quarter just begun, many clubs are starting up for the year. Most do not have a set schedule for meetings until they can build interest and recruit members.
Students who are interested in joining a club should check in with the Office of Student Life in room C210 as the quarter progresses to find out more information about when and where the club meetings will be held.
One club for Pierce students is Anchor Club. It is a Christian based club that Pierce student Isaac Folitau said, “is about making connections.” The club usually meets once a week to talk about life and God.
Another group at Pierce is Raiders Cheer. Pierce College is looking for students to be a part of the cheer squad for the 2014-2015 season. Students who are interested in more information can go the cheer section on the Pierce website or can email coach Kay at
Other clubs on campus are the Debate Team, Climbing Club, Choir Club, Pierce College Student Veterans and Raiders Rugby.
If a student wants to be in a club that is not offered, they can start their own by picking up a club packet in the Office of Student Life.
A club must consist of at least five currently enrolled students, one of whom must be selected as president. The group must also have a staff or faculty member agree to oversee the club as an adviser and fill out the Adviser Agreement Form inside the club packet.
In addition to these requirements, Pierce clubs must also meet once a month and have at least one event per quarter. Clubs can request funding for buying materials, holding on and off campus events and attending educational functions such as conferences.
Once students have completed the club packet, their request will be reviewed at the next student council meeting for approval.
