ANC recognizes that student organizations provide an avenue for college students to develop their own unique talents and interests. Student organizations foster educational, social, and/or personal development and provide for profitable use of leisure time. The College encourages students to create new organizations to meet the changing needs and interests of the student body. If a student group wishes to use College facilities on a regular basis or conduct programs on campus, it must request to become an approved student organization. Any group of six or more students may petition for recognition and funding as a new organization by submitting a constitution and by-laws for approval by Student Services staff and by securing a faculty/staff advisor to work with the group. Complete guidelines for approval are available in the office of the Director of Student Services. Student organizations vary each academic year based on student interest.
