Campus Life

Student Activities Program

The purpose of the Student Activities Program is to provide students with an environment in which to enhance identification, affiliation, friendship, and responsibility; to assist with the delivery of services which will facilitate the completion of educational goals; and to provide students with an organization through which they may have self-governance and participate in co-curricular and extracurricular activities.

The Student Government of Cerro Coso (SGCC) is the official student organization, with membership open to all students. The SGCC, through its governing body, the Student Senate, promotes the Student Activities Program at the college. A system of self-government has been established by which the students, through democratic action, formulate and execute resolutions and programs and prepare the student body's annual budget. Students have the opportunity to serve as a club representative or student Senator, to hold office, and to join other college student organizations.

Cerro Coso Community College students can purchase the Coyote Card each semester at the time of registration. Those funds, in turn, support the Student Activities Program which benefits the college and contributes to the welfare of all students. Members are also entitled to reduced or free admission to various on-campus and off-campus events sponsored by the SGCC and discounts at various local businesses.

Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors are a group of students who are committed to serving as emissaries for the college. By joining and becoming a Student Ambassador, students are demonstrating their willingness to share Cerro Coso’s goals and vision with college visitors, new students, and the community.

Participation in this program is an opportunity for current Cerro Coso students to show pride in their school while making an impact on the lives of individuals who are planning for a college education. Being a Student Ambassador is a challenging and rewarding educational opportunity with a truly positive and memorable experience.
