Education is not limited to the classroom and employers know this. Student activities give students first-hand experience in planning and publicizing an event, managing a budget, recruiting volunteers, and being a leader. Many students have found their first job after college through contacts made during their club’s activities.
Through the use of a percentage of student activity fees, the SGA also supports student clubs and organizations and funds a variety of campus events and services that enhance the quality of student life. Officers are elected in the spring semester.
To find out who the current faculty adviser is for a particular club, call the campus Student Activity Office or the Student Government Association. If students participate in an activity, they take advantage of precious opportunities to meet new friends and to make college a more memorable experience. Most graduates agree that their fondest memories of college are in some way connected to their affiliation with a student club or organization.
The Student Government Association of Erie Community College is comprised of elected student representatives who provide a forum for student input, assist in the coordination of student activities and work closely with the college administration in developing policies which affect students. All students are encouraged to participate in either the Student Government Association or in one or more of the co-curricular clubs at each of the campuses. Any questions should be directed to the campus activities coordinators.
