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 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.
