Student Services-Clubs and Organizations

Many career programs have developed clubs related to their program objectives. Each club has a faculty advisor and provides educational experiences for members. Clubs may be started by any interested group of students or by an instructor. In order for a club to be approved by the Student Government Association, it is required to have a constitution and an advisor. Many programs have developed a club which not only promotes Lakeshore Technical College but helps various civic organizations by conducting surveys, collecting money for charities, giving scholarships, and helping with workshops. Members of these clubs support their common career goals by attending workshops and seminars, taking tours, participating in state and national activities, setting up programs, and becoming acquainted with various organizations of their profession. Assistance is given to official program-related clubs through the Student Government Association.
