Participating in extracurricular activities can bring a whole new perspective to your life as a Cochise College student. Activities encourage leadership and service while also giving students the opportunity to have fun, socialize and learn time-management skills.
Many campus events are the result of student clubs and organizations, which are governed by the Student Government Association. If you want your time on campus to be more than class time, you can make it happen by joining a student organization.
If you do not find a club you are interested in joining, start your own! Your favorite hobby or activity can give your resume a boost. All you need is an approved full-time faculty or staff and two additional students. Stop by the SGA office to learn more about the approval process and funds to get started.
Our club is a subchapter of AFCEA International (Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association), which is a non-profit membership association serving the military, government, industry, and academia as an ethical forum for advancing professional knowledge and relationships in the fields of communications, IT, intelligence, and global security.

Our two major events each year are supporting the Southern Arizona Chapter’s fundraising event – AFCEA Week – normally held the first full week of October. The club also puts on the annual Computer Challenge the first Friday of March.
