Clubs & Co-Curricular Programs

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."  Read the full article "The Benefits of Community College Clubs."

Check out the list of LBCC's Clubs and Co-Curricular Programs below, then use the "Click Here" button at the bottom of this page to request information on any of them.


CLUBS

From board games to anime to drama, dance or politics, LBCC has a club for you.  Check out the list of current clubs--if nothing grabs you, consider starting your own.  All you need is an idea, an adviser and eight club members—we’re here to guide you through the process.  New clubs receive $100 and can present a budget for materials or activities to the Council of Clubs for additional funding at any time during the school year.  Clubs hold a variety of fundraisers and other events throughout the year.  A Club Expo is held at the beginning of Winter term in which members showcase their clubs’ offerings and provide information about meeting times and places.  LBCC's Welcome Day, College Night and OneVibe Diversity Day are other annual venues in which to participate and earn funds.  Some clubs also choose to host a Courtyard Lunch in October or May to promote their organizations and earn incentive funds.

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.  Please send a representative to a bi-weekly Council of Clubs meeting!  The more clubs that participate, the greater the value.  Council of Clubs meets at 2:30 p.m. every other Wednesday in MKH-118 (first floor, near the fountain at the east end of the Forum).  For more information, contact Clubs & Student Engagement Director Kylie McLoud 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 (Forum-120, downstairs northeast corner of the courtyard).  You can find the latest meeting minutes here.  Read the bylaws 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 adviser how you can get involved.
