Student Organizations

Participating in extracurricular organizations shows future employers that students can handle school, work and other activities, which in turn shows responsibility and organization.



Student Government Association

The Student Government Association provides a form of representative self-government to all students enrolled in the college. Through this organization, rules and regulations are formulated and carried out, and plans for student’s activities are made and implemented. In order for the Student Government Association to successfully meet the needs of the student body, students are encouraged and expected to attend meetings and participate in the activities of the SGA. The SGA at River Parishes Community College is a program in which every student is provided the opportunity to participate.

The Gamma Beta Phi Society

The Gamma Beta Phi Society RPCC Chapter was chartered on May 1, 2011. Gamma Beta Phi is an honor and service organization for students in colleges and universities in the United States. Students invited into membership in The Gamma Beta Phi Society must be committed to excellence in education, to good character, and to service. The student must be enrolled in a program leading to an associate degree, must have completed at least twelve credit hours of college work and have a 3.0 cumulative grade point average.

Recognition and publicity are the primary benefits of membership in any honor society. The Gamma Beta Phi Society is not just an honor society, and hence members enjoy the satisfaction of active participation in meaningful service projects and camaraderie with other honor students. Membership is completely transferable to any other college or university where a chapter exists.
