Join a Student Club!
Student clubs and activities at Diablo Valley College are student initiated and run. The student club program on the Diablo Valley campus is an integral part of DVC's educational program. It gives students opportunities to develop valuable leadership and interpersonal skills that will benefit the student while at DVC, and in their future. Students learn to organize, to work with others, pursue special interests, and make friends.
Club membership is open to all Diablo Valley College students regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin or physical limitations. All clubs have mail boxes in the Margaret Lesher Student Union Building. Messages may be left for club officers in their mailboxes. You can take a look at the club list to see the variety of clubs that will be active this semester. Meetings are open to all students. Check one out!
Fall 2013 Information
As returning clubs are approved for the fall semester, we will post their meeting time and location on the bulletin board inside the Student Union Building and club list webpage. Attend club meetings or check out the Student Life calendar to view club activities planned for the semester. Check back often as events may be added/updated weekly!
If you are interested in learning more about DVC's clubs or joining a club, then come to a Club Day! A variety of clubs will be tabling on these days to share information about their clubs. The first club days of the semester happened on September 10 and 11 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Stay tuned for additional Club Days throughout the fall semester. Please check with the Student Life Office for those dates.
The deadline for renewing a returning club was Monday, September 16, 2013. Any existing club that wished to return for the fall 2013 semester was required to submit a "Club Renewal" form along with a signed advisor agreement by 4 p.m. on September 16. Please remember: the earlier you submit your renewal packet the better the room availability, and the sooner your club can begin meeting. All renewal packets must be submitted to the Student Life Office by the deadline, either in person or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
STARTING A NEW CLUB
Interested in starting a club that you feel would benefit the student body that is not already being offered? Great! Click here for details on steps to start a new club at DVC, and be sure to attend a mandatory "Starting a New Club" workshop early in the fall!
Club activities are an important part of the club program, and for the campus as a whole. The Student Life Office wants to support you in making all of your events as successful as possible. A key aspect of this support is in the pre-planning! With this in mind, the Student Life Office has enhanced the events initiation process. Beginning this fall there is a now an 'Activity Proposal Memo' to help the Student Life Staff best assist clubs with activities. If you have questions with the form, or with the planning of your activity, please contact the Student Life Office.
INTER CLUB COUNCIL (ICC)
The ICC meetings are every Thursday from 3:30-5 p.m. in the Student Union Conference Room. The first ICC meeting for fall 2013 will be held on September 19. All clubs MUST have an ICC Representative attend the meeting. The meetings are open to the public.
