Why Clubs / Associations at SJC?
Most students go to college to learn. Most know, or at least soon discover, that their academic work at college will be different than the work that they did in school. They are expected to spend more time studying and there is a higher level of thinking demanded. But the college years are also about other kinds of learning. Often much of this other learning happens outside of the classroom.

Clubs at College offers students opportunities to pursue old interests and to discover the new ones. Unfortunately, too many college students pass up some of the opportunities that they have in college, because they are too focused on either their academic life or their party life. Many worry, that getting involved in activities or organizations on campus will distract them from their academic pursuits rather than enhancing their academics.

A student learns to find his/her own path during college. He/She will need to make his/her own choices. SJC wants to help its student think about the benefits of getting involved in groups and activities that the college offers. Getting involved in groups that share common interests, or attending activities offered by the college can be fun. Getting involved gives you the opportunity to meet new people.
