Student Clubs & Organizations
Believing that college provides opportunities for tremendous social and spiritual interaction
between students and the community and to develop personal interests and leadership skills,
Clearwater Christian College encourages our students to organize themselves into appropriate
clubs and organizations to serve one another and the community. One distinct feature of our
CCC program is that all clubs are student initiated and formed upon a common objective of
serving others. Students are encouraged to take their common interests, abilities, and
aspirations and form specific groups that meet regularly for fellowship and encouragement and
to occasionally host special events for members, the student body, and a specific segment of the
community. This concept encourages personal initiative and motivation. New clubs are formed
at the start of each semester and every club is evaluated for continuation at the conclusion of
the school year. All student clubs operate under the guidance of Student Government. Funding
is provided through students services and is awarded on membership count and group
participation. If you don't see a club with your specific interest - come to CCC and form it
At the hub of all student clubs and organizations is Student Government. A specific description
of this organization is provided initially and followed by a listing of current clubs, their specific
niche, and a brief description of past events.
Student Government is a body of student leaders chosen by vote of the entire student body who approve
and manage all other student organizations, create and stimulate an exciting Christian culture through
student body events and special chapels, and represents the interest of the student body with school administration.
Nominations are taken and elections are held each spring and officers serve an entire academic year.

I chose CCC because of the Christian environment. I also really liked that CCC is a smaller school. I feel like I do not get lost in a crowd here, but instead I have the chance to really get to know people and form relationships. As a transfer student from another Christian college, I see that CCC is different. The biggest difference is the professors. At my other school I did not get to know the professors, but here at CCC, the professors are always there for you when you need them and they really make an effort to get to know you. As a member of Joy Club, a service organization at CCC, I am able to go and spend some time with kids who just need someone to hang out with them, and it is amazing. I love the opportunity to go and just spread the love that God has given me to these kids.
