Find Your Purpose

Clubs and Organizations 

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 Student 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. In order to receive approval from ASRCC clubs must complete the following requirements:

  • A minimum of seven (7) Riverside City College students who have paid their Student Serivices Activity Fee; including a President, Treasurer, and ICC Representative.
  • A minimum of one (1) advisor who is a Riverside City College full-time faculty that will advise and provide guidance to the student organization on various college policies, supervise all financial activity and be present at all meetings and events. All advisors must sign the "Advisor Agreement" (see Club Packet). Adjunct faculty and college staff may serve as associate advisors provided its approved in their workload. 
  • Have a constitution and by-laws providing details on how the club/organization will operate and the roles of the organization officers. (see Club Packet).
  • Submit the Club Packet to the Student Activities Office within the first six weeks of the Fall semester, or the semester you wish to charter.
  • Once all requirements have been fulfilled, ASRCC will then review the new student organization's constitution and bylaws at the weekly ASRCC Senate Meeting. 

ASRCC offers students a variety of clubs and organizations that you can join to make a difference, gain leadership skills, make friends, and earn volunteer community service hours. Students can join an existing club or start their own. Any enrolled RCC student is able to form a club.

The RCC Photo Club is a diverse student group with a passion for photography. We have photographic fun and serve our college and community through volunteer efforts. We expand our horizons with photography trips and weekly photo challenges. The club has an advisor who guides the group, but the members drive it. It rises and falls on your initiative and enthusiasm. We hope that you’ll choose to join us!

Each new group guides the club a little differently, however there are some things that we have done for years:

  • Volunteer to photograph Riverside City College events on and off campus with exclusive access.
  • Reindeer Roundup and Bunny Hop – set up a simple game or craft table, and photograph children with Santa and the Big Bunny.

Meetings – Every Monday at 3pm via Zoom
