Enrich Your Life and Our Community

At NECC you’re sure to find people who share your passion and student groups that fill your life with purpose. From organizations (International Student Club, SGA, NSLS), to clubs (Anime Club, Gender Sexuality Alliance, Nursing Club), to interest groups (NECC Cheerleading Team), come explore the many ways you can add value to your life and our community.

There are many ways for students to make their time at NECC really count. Getting involved in a student organization, interest group, or club is the best way to explore new ideas and experiences, as well to make new friends. The Office of Student Life encourages students to email the club advisor to find out when and where the student involvement group meets or to answer any additional questions about the individual group. Students can join an organization, interest group, or club anytime during the semester. Club advisors and email addresses provided under each description.
