Student Clubs and Organizations

Student life can be quite overwhelming. It is not always easy to balance coursework, private and work life. However, there are activities that can substantially improve not only your overall quality of life but also your ability to succeed in school and beyond.

CCRE therefore encourages its students to become involved in as many student clubs or organizations as their interest, schedule, and other commitments permit. Being part of a student club or organization

  • helps you making new friends and working as part of a team
  • allows you to develop new skills and abilities
  • contributes to your overall college education
  • gives you opportunities for personal growth, professional development and networking and
  • last but not least fun and enjoyment from organization activities
