Get Involved

Sometimes, your best growth in college comes outside the classroom. It's time to get involved! The Parkland College Office of Student Life will help you boost your résumé with volunteer and leadership opportunities. Our 25+ campus clubs and organizations offer you numerous opportunities to become acquainted with other students, develop leadership skills, and work with those who share similar interests. Clubs range from honorary to career-focused to multicultural to special-interest groups. You can join an existing organization, re-establish a inactive club, or even form a new club.

In addition, Student Life sponsors numerous campus events and collaborates with other college departments to offer a variety of programs for students:

  • Social
    Welcome Week activities, concerts, entertainers
  • Educational
    Sexual responsibility, motivational speakers, study skills 
  • Developmental
    Leadership workshops, service-learning opportunities

Student Life will also help you with the little (and not so little) details, too, like getting a student ID, finding a place to live, and preparing for commencement.
