Five Frequently Asked Questions About CCM’s Clubs
1) How can I join a club?
It’s easier than you think:
- Check the club listing for postings about clubs social media, then reach out to the clubs. CCM Student Clubs Listing
- Ask about the club at Campus Life, SCC 226 or on the Virtual Campus Life Information Window.
- Sign up with the group at the “Student Club and Organization Fair” held every semester (September and February, during the “Welcome Bash”).
- Contact the club’s advisor – you can find out who that is by going to theÂ CCM Student Clubs ListingÂ page.
- Be persistent – donâ€™t give up! New members are always welcome.
2) When do the clubs meet?
As a general rule, student clubs will meet when it is most convenient for the majority of the club’s members. Many clubs meet during what is known as ‘College Activity Hour’, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30 pm – to 1:45 pm. These ‘College Activity Hours’ are periods set aside for meetings, programs, performances and special lectures.

Of course you can! CCM also provides you with the opportunity to start new student organizations. Before a newÂ club can be officially recognized, theÂ organization must have a faculty or staff advisor, a constitution, a membership list of at least ten students, and a club leadership roster (president, secretary, treasurer, etc.). Assistance in preparing this paperwork can be obtained fromÂ the Office of Campus Life
You can also get more information on what is involved by reading theÂ Chartering Process andÂ the STUDENT ORGANIZATION GUIDEBOOK AND POLICY MANUAL.
