Student Activities and Life
Student Activities and Life - Get Involved!
The student body of Johnston Community College is similar in many respects to a cross section of the adult population in the local area, from which most of the members of the student body come. In varying degrees student life typically centers around four major areas of interests: formal course work as a community college student; home, family, and community commitments; employment obligations for those who hold part-time or full-time jobs; and co-curricular student activities.We have a new Student Lounge!
Co-curricular activities are organized by students in response to student interests and needs and are recognized as a significant dimension of the educational experience. In addition to student government, co-curricular activities typically consist of athletic activities, cookouts, student clubs and organizations, social events, and other activities.
Co-curricular activities provide additional learning experiences beyond the formal classroom setting for all who choose to become involved. These experiences include development of leadership skills through participation in student organizations and working together with fellow students on social, recreational, and community service projects.
