Many new students do not know that they can also create their own club when they are not interested in any existing club. They may use some challenge like creating their own club.

First you must have five or more students that want to become members, and then you should find at least ten 10 people who support the establishment of the club.

Then club founder need to go to the ASG office. ASG stands for “Associated Student Government”. The office is located in business building, room 101. Students can apply for a “club charter form,” which basically asks for the information of the club students want to build.

Joining a club is an excellent way to make new friends and exploring opportunities on campus.

“Being in charge of a club gives me a more organized school life and more sense of responsibility.” Said Justin Cu. Cu used to held several hot dog selling events in SJCC with his club members.

Many club founders have happy memories with those hard tasks.

A former student in San Jose City College named Daniel Vo founded a soccer club in the 2015 spring term.

“By the time the soccer club was found, I was very excited and motivated,” Vo said.

Although he had a lot of difficulties and some hard time, he said, he was having fun, as well. He designed the club poster with a friend and set up a questionnaire box in the Student Center trying to recruit members in different ways.

Jared is the founder of Japanese Club, he said:” first we had an idea, and then we just found it and made it real.”

Moreover, he said:” …School has met for club founders every Wednesday, so we can know what other clubs are doing and maybe we can hold something together.”

San Jose City College is a pool of opportunities; teachers and staff encourage students to succeed.

Students should not be shy of creating clubs. They can attend to activities outside the campus, therefore, students’ college lives are more fulfilled;

Club is like a mini society, everyone takes their own role. The funders are like the managers in a business. Don’t be shy to establish your own club. If you have ideas, make it happen like others!
