Over 80 student clubs provide students a connection with academic programs, topical interest sharing, sharing of leisure-time activities, social interaction and a connection with the communities of students at the college. Practicing leadership, business and organizational skills outside the classroom enhances students’ life and career goals.
Student club members should contact Student Life staff member Jelymar Mejia to schedule dates for their club.
“I want to be a voice for the students. For example, the SLC discussed how the federal relief funds that the College is receiving due to COVID-19 can best help students. I was able to bring our thoughts to the Board in order to help them understand the student perspective on this important financial support issue." - Naila SabahatNaila's COD Story

“Within the first five minutes of joining Pride Alliance, COD’s gay-straight alliance, I was a changed person. And, for the first time in my life, I felt accepted for who I was. My objective was to expand Pride to help more students than it had in the past, so I applied for the president position and, with a great team of officers, we did just that." - Bradley KirouacBradley's COD Story
