Find Your Pride

Want to make the most of your college experience, then getting involved on campus during your free time between classes, studying, and work is the way! Getting involved also provides you with opportunities to engage with classmates, gain valuable “real-world” experience, and work to achieve common goals, while developing social and professional relationships. Plus, being involved looks really good on transfer and job applications! Student clubs and organizations help to enhance the quality of student life on campus and provide leadership and engagement opportunities. Student Life and Activities recognizes and supports over 75 student clubs and organizations. Clubs and organizations range from cultural, academic and honor societies, recreational, religious, and special interest. Need more reasons – Check this Out!

The purpose of clubs and co-curricular organizations is to encourage personal and professional growth through social, cultural, occupational, and service co-curricular opportunities that supplement the academic experience. Clubs and organizations are funded through Student Activity fees paid each semester, so students must have their student services fees paid up to date to join clubs and organizations!

Current Clubs

A Club is an officially chartered and ASRCC approved extra-curricular group whose active membership is limited to current RCC students and has at least one advisor who is a current full-time faculty member of the college. Student Clubs have to be approved by Student Life and Activities, and recognized by Associated Students of Riverside City College (ASRCC) to be allowed to use the College name, use of College facilities, & request funds from ASRCC. Clubs can change year after year and need to be rechartered each academic year.
