Central Texas College is a vibrant and diverse campus, offering a wide range of activities for students to get involved in. Approximately 18 clubs and organizations representing a variety of interests are active on campus, and we encourage students to participate in one or more of them. The contact information is shown below, and for organizations with web pages, the link is provided. At Central Texas College, students can take part in traditional Aggie activities such as Yell Practice, Muster, Silver Taps, SALT Camp (Sea Aggies Learning Traditions) and the famous Aggie Ring.
Additionally, they can join the Student Senate, the Nautilus (newspaper) or Sea Spray (literary magazine). The Outdoor Adventure Club was created in the fall of 2003 and has quickly grown in popularity. This organization promotes knowledge of outdoor activities and teaches students and university employees of all skill levels useful outdoor skills. Activities include camping, hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, and other fun and healthy activities.
Membership is open to all people who love the outdoors. Having a part-time job while in college is a great way to gain work experience and demonstrate your work ethic and experience in a professional environment. It also shows universities that you are able to support yourself and earn your own money, even if you live with your parents. Interning with a non-profit organization or local company can also help you prepare for college level courses and increase your chances of entering more selective universities.
High school extracurricular activities can give you an edge when applying to college. The Health Science Student Organization acts as a liaison between faculty and students, helps with community health issues, participates in legislative activities related to health issues, and appoints delegates to the state convention each year. Central Texas College is accredited by the Universities Commission of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate degrees and certificates of completion. The oldest, largest and most prestigious community college association in the world honors students, recognizes and promotes academic excellence on 1,200 community college campuses around the world.
Central Texas College provides accessible, quality educational opportunities that support a diverse student population and promote student success, completion, and employability. Student clubs and organizations are sanctioned by the faculty administration in accordance with the belief that each one provides a particular service to the School and to the students. All student organizations and activities must comply with the educational objectives and administrative regulations of Central Texas College, as stated in official documents and in the Manual of Student Organizations and Sponsors. Contact the University Commission at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia, 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 if you have questions about Central Texas College accreditation.
Hobbies are also considered extracurricular activities if they are done in an organized or official way or as part of a club or team. While different schools value extracurricular activities differently, almost all universities consider them when deciding which students to admit.
