Clubs & Co-Curricular Programs

Congratulations to LBCC's superstar co-curricular programs, ROV and Vocal Music!  The ROV team in June placed 8th overall out of 600 teams at the MATE (Marine Advanced Technology Education) International competition in Alpena, Michigan.

In July, the Concert Choir and Chamber Choir competed in the World Choir Games in Riga, Latvia, bringing home three awards, including first place in Chamber Choir.

LBCC's co-curricular programs are truly world-class!

Welcome to Clubs & Co-Curricular Programs at Linn-Benton Community College:  we’re all that—and a bag of chips!  We like to have fun around here, and we offer many ways to do that while becoming more involved in campus life and making new friends.  According to Community College Review, "Community college club and activity opportunities are essential for students interested in creating a well-developed resume for job and career applications. In addition to professional development opportunities, community college clubs also provide students with personal, social, and community service venues, enhancing the overall collegiate experience."  Click here to read the full article "The Benefits of Community College Clubs."

CLUBS

From swing dance to horticulture to geology, dance or poetry, LBCC has a club for you.  Check out the list of current clubs below--if nothing grabs you, consider starting your own.  All you need is an idea, an advisor and eight club members—we’re here to guide you through the process.  Active clubs receive $100 in Club Reserve Funds at the beginning of each academic year and hold a variety of fundraisers and other events throughout the year.  A Club Expo is held at the beginning of Fall and Winter terms in which members showcase their clubs’ offerings and provide information about meeting times and places.  Some clubs also choose to host a Courtyard Lunch in October or May to promote their organization and raise money.  LBCC's annual College Night is also a great venue in which to participate.

COUNCIL OF CLUBS

LBCC's Council of Clubs makes it possible for clubs to pool resources, work together on common issues, share ideas and sponsor joint events that benefit all clubs.  The more clubs that participate in bi-weekly Council meetings, the greater the value.  The Council of Clubs meets from 1-2 p.m. every other Wednesday in IA232, upstairs on the north side of the courtyard.  For more information, contact Student Outreach Director Jordan Hagle at slcoutreach@linnbenton.edu or Program Assistant Heather Morijah at morijah@linnbenton.edu.  You can also call 541.917.4465 or stop by the Student Life & Leadership office, downstairs northeast corner of the courtyard.  You can find the latest meeting minutes here.

CO-CURRICULAR PROGRAMS

Co-Curricular Programs are a little different than clubs.  They’re closely tied to various academic programs at LBCC and provide both a learning experience and camaraderie among students who share similar academic interests.   Co-Curriculars allow students to become more deeply involved in their education by offering hands-on opportunities for learning, performance, competition and travel.  If you’re interested in these courses of study or a particular Co-Curricular Program, ask your advisor how you can get involved.
