Student Clubs and Organizations

Vibrant activities are a vital aspect of college life at Anoka-Ramsey Community College.

Students, alumni and community members are welcome to take part in the variety of clubs, organizations and events.

The Student Activities Office at each campus supports extra curricular programming designed to supplement your courses.

Academic clubs, civic and social clubs and organizations, and other student activities which are offered for optional credit are available.  In addition, the Student Activities Office sponsors numerous social, educational, and cultural events throughout the year, including concerts, art exhibits, speakers, and movies.

If, however, your interest isn't represented and you'd like to form your own club, you’re welcome to meet with the Coordinator of Student Activities. Our Clubs and Organizations Guide will help you start a club or guide you through your participation in a club.  Club forms are available on the Student Forms web page.
