Greenfield Community College

Clubs

Student clubs offer countless opportunities for individual and group development and they represent the most visible and accessible avenue to student involvement on a college campus. Additionally, student clubs reflect the diverse interests and activities of GCC’s student body. Check out the list of clubs below. Club meetings are open to all GCC students; contact the club advisor listed if you have questions or what more information. If want to start a new club, here’s the GCC New Club Info Packet 2014-2015

Active Minds

The purpose of the club is 1. To increase awareness among GCC students about issues of mental health, symptoms of mental illness, and available resources in and around the GCC community. 2. To become a point of reference for GCC students for information on Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Eating Disorders, PTSD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and any other mental health diagnosis. 3. To become a liaison between GCC students and the mental health community through flyering campus with fact sheets, hosting and/or sponsoring charity fundraisers, guest speakers, and related events. We are an independent organization, affiliated only with the national headquarters Active Minds, Inc.(Washington, DC).
