The formation of student groups on campus is encouraged, provided these groups serve a positive function and promote on-campus student engagement. Clubs may sponsor major social activities, special engagements, and, in some instances, provide financial aid through scholarships.
To receive official sanction, a club must contact the Director of Student Activities. The director can provide information about the procedures for starting clubs, as well as information on possible funding for programming and make arrangements for space or room reservations.
Have an idea for a club or organization? Contact the Director of Student Activities, Abbie Twyford Wilson, at [email protected] or 330.480.0726 x3129.
EGCC Student Ambassadors
Student leaders have a critical role to play in the effective operation of a number of aspects of the higher education space. Within the realm of Student Affairs, students are an important and valued part of the community and support services we provide. Student leaders can offer peer support to classmates, assist with events and activities, provide feedback to the institution, and act as a liaison between students and administration. Student Ambassadors from Eastern Gateway Community College will be able to meet all of those expectations.
The students’ personal growth and development as leaders in their college community will not only allow them to thrive as students here at EGCC, but foster their continued success in their future endeavors, whether in the classroom after transferring to a 4-year institution, or in the workplace after attaining an associate’s degree. These student leaders will also help represent the college within the community. They will be able to present themselves in a professional manner to businesses, volunteer agencies, community organizations, and beyond.
Having successfully completed the program, students will be known as leaders on campus who can serve as ambassadors on campus and within the community. In their last semester at EGCC, students will receive an honors cord and recognition at the Honors Convocation prior to Spring Commencement. Interested students must complete an application, which includes a short essay, and also requires a letter of recommendation from a faculty or staff member. They must meet two out of three criteria: GPA of 3.0+; be a full time student; and have been at EGCC for at least one full semester.
Requests for applications to the program are sent out in the Fall and Spring semesters.

The IT Club consists of students in the Information Technology program as well as any other students who would like to participate. The group’s main function is to diagnose and repair computer problems for faculty, staff, students, and the public during the fall and spring semesters. We have a Computer Clinic each year to raise funds for the club and to donate to worthy causes. We take field trips to relevant events and enjoy socializing with each other. We meet biweekly (every other week) via Google Hangouts so that students may participate from the main Steubenville campus as well as the Youngstown campus.

Student Dental Assisting Organization
The Student Dental Assisting Organization is open to those students enrolled in the Dental Assisting certificate program. The purpose of this group is to provide the student with the opportunity to develop leadership skills and self confidence, while promoting service learning.
This group has a fall semester start-up, with the class voting on a class president and secretary for the club. Meetings will be conducted twice a month under the guidance of the group advisor.
