So, you want to get involved ...

The mission of Campus Life and Leadership at MCC-Blue River is to complement the academic program and enhance the sense of community on campus.

The goal is accomplished by providing opportunities for students to develop, implement and participate in social, cultural, intellectual, recreational, governmental, leadership development and community service programs and events. These co-curricular experiences provide students with leadership skills that can be utilized in future educational, community and professional work environments.

Campus Life and Leadership sponsors leadership and other activities throughout the year.

Contact us for more information on specific clubs and organizations, opportunities for involvement, or how to start a club or organization. Your participation is valuable to us and we encourage you to take an active part in campus life.

The SGA will also be responsible for many activities on campus.
