Student Clubs & Organizations

Educational research shows that students who join a club or get involved in campus life are more likely to succeed in school.  To contribute toward a well-rounded academic experience, BRCC’s Office of Student Life has a wide variety of student clubs and organizations.  Students who are interested in joining an existing organization should contact the Office of Student Life staff for assistance.  A BRCC Club/Organization Registration Form may be found here to help interested students get in contact with registered club and organizations.

Office of Student Life staff members are constantly striving to improve and expand the College’s offering of programs. Students who are interested in starting a new club or organization should call (225) 216-8432 or stop by the Office of Student Life in the Bienvenue Student Center to speak with the Office of Student Life staff for more information.

Types of Clubs and Organizations

There are several categories of clubs and organizations at BRCC, each of which meets a specific set of goals, objectives, and student needs. These categories include areas of interest and achievement such as clubs/organizations of Special Interest, Activism and Awareness, Religious and Spiritual, and Community Service. For a complete listing of types of clubs see the navigation bar to the left.

Club Advisors

Every student organization is required to have a full-time staff or faculty member as an advisor.  The advisor has various responsibilities to the student club/organization, the most important of which is to help his/her club/organization achieve their objectives. 

Advisors play a critical role in the guidance and fulfillment of student club/organization goals and are an integral part of campus life.  Students benefit most from having advisors who are committed, active, and involved with the organization and its activities.  There are a number of general duties and specific functions that both BRCC and the Office of Student Life require faculty/staff advisors to perform.

Club/organization advisors must complete a Club Advisors’ Application in order to serve as an advisor; this application can be found under "Forms" on the Clubs/Organizations page, on the navigation bar to the left.  Advisors must also attend mandatory meetings at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters.
