There are many opportunities for students to engage in life beyond the classroom: student organizations, extracurricular activities, peer tutoring, volunteering for our days of service, or serving on a college committee. We value student input and encourage involvement. If you are interested in learning more about our student activities, please email us.
Carolinas College offers several student organizations that provide opportunities to get involved on campus.
Student Government Association (SGA)
The SGA provides the primary voice for students in college decision making and coordinates college-wide activities to encourage interaction between students in different academic programs.
Ambassadors serve as college representatives at recruiting events and help new students adjust to life at CCHS
Student Nurses Association (SNA)
The CCHS chapter of SNA provides opportunities for nursing and pre-nursing students to grow professionally as they explore various topics and careers in nursing. Students may also join at the state and national level which affords opportunities for scholarships, state and national conferences, and eligibility to receive student nurse publications. Visit www.nsna.org for additional information about the National Student Nurses’ Association.
Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

Recurring Events and Activities
- Constitution Day - In celebration of the signing of the U. S. Constitution on September 17, 1787, CCHS hosts a special event each September commemorating the event.

Each year at the May Commencement ceremony, we host class reunions for our 50-, 60-, and 70-year graduates.
