Cochise College offers a number of activities and events for students. At both the Douglas and Sierra Vista campuses, Student Government Association members plan, coordinate, promote and finance a variety of student activities and community service opportunities. A wide variety of clubs are organized around student interests and academic programs.
Students at the Douglas Campus can have a “traditional” college experience by deciding to live in residence halls while taking classes. However, all Cochise College students can take advantage of the many amenities and recreational opportunities found at the Douglas Campus in addition to club activities.
In the Student Union, students will find pool tables, air hockey and an art gallery, plus all dining hall services.
The main residence hall lobby provides a lounge area with a pool table, ping-pong, TVs, couches and computers for studying or relaxing. Next to the residence halls is a sand volleyball court, and on the east side of campus is a swimming pool and weight room.
The Douglas Campus is also home to all of Cochise College’s athletic teams, which include baseball, basketball, rodeo and soccer. The Apaches compete in the Arizona Community College Athletic Conference and under the National Junior College Athletic Association.
The Student Union serves as the “community center” of the Sierra Vista Campus. It provides a variety of services, facilities and programs that meet the needs of the campus community.
The building houses the Union Cafe, a great place to get foods and snacks, Broxton’s Coffee and the bookstore. The Student Union also features a large open lobby for student events, activities and fundraisers, as well as several TVs along with Xbox and Wii systems available for checkout.
Students can also stop by the Student Government office to borrow lawn games, footballs, soccer balls and frisbees to play in the green lawn outside the building in between classes.
Cochise College provides accessible educational opportunities that are responsive to a diverse population and lead to constructive citizenship, meaningful careers and lifelong learning.
