What are ASCBC Student Clubs?
The purpose of student clubs at CBC is to provide opportunities for the enhancement of academic, cultural, social and recreational aspects of student life through participation in group programs and activities. These groups allow students with common interests to come together and share their talents and knowledge with the greater student community. Every CBC student has the opportunity to become involved! Clubs are open to ALL students who are enrolled in at least one credit or more!
We are always looking for dedicated students to run for Executive Council and/or apply for Service and Activities Board (SAB). If you want to gain leadership experience, earn money, build your resume and have fun, this is a great opportunity for you!
The ASCBC President, Vice President, and Secretary of Legislative Affairs are not only student officers but also paid CBC student employees. As a collective, these positions are called Executive Council. Executive Council members are paid minimum wage, up to 19 hours per week.
To join the Executive Council, you can apply through the student employment website when the positions post in April of each year. Once we determine that you meet all the minimum qualifications, we will contact you. Positions are filled via a selection or election process.
Maybe you aren’t a starter? Maybe you just want to join. Great! Check out the list of current clubs below.
Also, be sure to stop by one of our Club Rush events! Club Rush happens twice per year, during the beginning of fall and winter quarters. At Club Rush, you'll have the opportunity to connect with the students and advisors directly involved with our current clubs and learn all about the club's purpose and goals (oh, and there's always free food and prizes!).
Service and Activity (S&A) Fees are for the purpose of supporting student activities
and programs. The boards of trustees of the state’s colleges and universities have
the express and exclusive authority to determine what constitutes bona fide student
activities. In its ordinary and usual meaning, “student activities” refers to any
college/university co-curricular or extra-curricular activity in which students participate
in the furtherance of their education.
ASCBC has a strong voice in how these fees are allocated and spent. Once the S&A budget has been recommended by ASCBC and approved by the College’s Board of Trustees, the College has the responsibility to ensure that state and institutional regulations and guidelines are followed.
Per RCW 28B.15.045, the S&A budget for the current year, along with the S&A expenditures from the previous year, must be posted publicly by September 30 of each year.
