The student activities program provides students an avenue to become involved in a variety of educational, social, cultural, political and recreational experiences.
The program offers various clubs and organizations that provide students the means to pursue their interests. The college typically operates with 35-40 clubs/organizations. If there is not an organization that a group of students would like to be involved with, they should contact the Director of Student Activities. All organizations support the instructional mission of the college and reinforce community on the PVCC campus.
In addition to clubs and organizations, PVCC has a Student Government Association (SGA) and a College Senate. The College Senate has representatives from the student body. Information on clubs and organizations can be obtained from the Student Activities Director.
During fall and spring semesters, the college reserves Monday and Wednesday from 11:50 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. as the official PVCC College Hour. Classes are not scheduled during this period so that students, staff, and faculty can attend club meetings, student activities, and college-wide events.
PVCC supports active participation of the student body in the Student Government Association (SGA) and committee structure of the college and considers this involvement a vital part of student development and leadership training. The SGA elects officers annually. Students are selected to serve on permanent and ad hoc committees of the college, including the Student Services Committee, and the Curriculum and Instruction Committee to address student needs and concerns. The SGA elects three student members to the College Senate each year.
