Student Organizations and Clubs

Studies have shown that students who get involved on campus are more likely to be successful at completing their degree. We value and promote student engagement opportunities, and we believe student involvement increases the chance of completion, persistence and the number of students transferring from our college to a four-year university. To show our commitment to the GRCC experience, we have more than thirty active student clubs and organizations.

We encourage you to become engaged with the student organizations by attending their events and meetings. For more information regarding student involvement, please visit the Student Life web page and create an OrgSync account.

OrgSync is our student involvement portal and all of the student club's information, meeting dates, and events are loaded there. Below you will find a list of the active student organizations and the contact information for the advisor of the group.
