Student Clubs and Organizations

Clubs and organizations play an important role in student life at GWC. These clubs and organizations incorporate rewarding learning experiences, leadership opportunities, exciting relationships, as well as enjoyment for all members. Not only is it an outlet for students with specific skills and interests to participate in activities that interest them, but it also helps to create a vibrant community that we can all enjoy.

Class Council
Class Council is a group of appointed students that represent each of the graduating classes along with transfer student representatives.

Missing something? Reach out to our Director for Student Life about interest groups.

Interest Group
A group of 3 or more people who share an interest in a common topic or interest. These can be surrounding interests such as music, art, gaming, non-academic study, and more. These groups do not need a faculty/staff advisor and can request meeting spaces to use in their interest exploration. Note, all A-Book policies must be adhered to and campus-wide events are not permitted for interest groups. Invites to meetings are permitted, however, funding requests are not available for these groups. These groups may run for as long or short as the group finds necessary. These groups will sign brief paperwork with the Director of Student Life and will communicate with him or her to acquire spaces and to start/end the group. These groups will remain open to all GWC students and their meetings will be displayed on the Student Life calendar.
