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
