Student Activities

The college encourages student activities that supplement the instructional program by providing recreational activities that will add to the student’s enjoyment of life and stimulate personal growth and social development. Opportunities for development of constructive leadership, cooperative planning, and special interests will be fostered through participation in student activities.

Student Clubs and Organizations

There are special interest clubs and organizations that offer opportunities for students to broaden the scope of their educational experiences. Students are encouraged to participate in the activities sponsored by the clubs and organizations listed or to contact any member of the student senate, or faculty members, with suggestions for forming new organizations. Membership in all organizations is open to any interested student.

No student club or organization may be established, conduct business, solicit funds, or sponsor activities unless the organization has been approved by the student senate and has been authorized by the college.

Identification cards are required for all registered Kirtland students. The Public Safety Office in the administration building will issue cards upon request to all students who register for classes. The identification cards are nontransferable and are valid for one college year. The card permits the student’s entry to many college or student-senate-sponsored functions at no charge or at a reduced rate.

Student Senate

The student senate is the student government organization at Kirtland. The senate is the means through which students can participate in institutional governance by representation on college standing committees. Also, senate members assist in planning a variety of extracurricular and co-curricular activities held throughout the year.

The officers and senators who comprise the student senate are elected each year by the student body. Senate meetings are held regularly during the year and are announced on the monitors located around the campus. These meetings are open to all who are interested.
