Two members of the new group Infect greet interested students during the
CCC Clubs and Organizations Fair on September 7.
The wait is finally over. Some of you may be saying, “Oh man, back to school already?” Yep. We’re keeping our minds sharp and our pencils sharper. Between the countless books to be read in the library or the free WIFI access we have here at the school, students have a difficult time not finding something to do.
If that doesn’t float your boat, then maybe one of Clinton Community College’s activity clubs or organizations would. “What’s that?” you may be asking yourself. Clubs. A place to get together with other people of like interest and do something fun! Yep, the college has many clubs and one honor society available at Clinton Community College.

Jamie Echebarria provide information about their group.
For example, Chi Alpha is a bible study group which started in 2010. It meets on Tuesdays at three p.m. and is headed by Dewitt Pentecostal pastor Curtis Girod, who has been a pastor since 1991 and has been teaching at Clinton Community College since 1998. He said, “Chi Alpha is open to anyone of any denomination, or of no denomination. You do not need to be a Christian even. If you would like to discuss the Bible, you are welcome to attend.” Those interested may go to room 106 on Tuesdays at 3 p.m.
If you’re into board games, then the Gaming Club would be great for you. It started last year and has an average of eight people attending each session. They meet once a month to determine which day they will be playing board games together and then they get together and play! Games like Twister, Connect 4, Chess, The Home Alone board game, UNO and more are available to play. Talk to Laura Gifford at Lgifford@live.eicc.edu if you’re interested in attending.
|Laura Gifford is the Gaming Club advisor.|
Let’s not forget our much esteemed Phi Theta Kappa honor society, only available to students with a 3.5 cumulative GPA or higher. Being a member has nice bonuses like opportunities for transfer scholarship and community service projects.
Other student organizations include the Creative Writing club, the veterans group, the Fine Arts Club, the Graphic Arts Printer Club, The Gallery student newspaper, the Music Club, the Nursing Club, Student Networkers and Programmers, and River Talk. Whatever your fancy, CCC is sure to have an organization for you. For more information, stop in the main office or call Kemi Okwumabua at 563-244-7071.
