Get Involved in Student Life

Student Government Participation in student government and activities enhances and enriches the student's education. To foster participation by students, two distinct and identifiable programs are offered: Student Government and Student Activities.

Student Government is represented by the Associated Student Body of Barstow College which annually elects its own administrative offi- cers and student senators who are provided with practical leadership training and education in the functions of government and leadership. In addi- tion, the Associated Student Body elects its own student trustee to the District Board of Trustees. The Student Senate, which consists of 12 senators, is afforded a variety of opportunities to partici- pate in various College-wide committees and task forces. All these activities serve to provide stu- dents with opportunities to participate in the decision and policy-making processes of the College.

Student Activities programs at the College provide a rich variety of opportunities to participate in the planning, development and implementation of a wide variety of educational, cultural, social and recreational activities. These activities, whether College-wide or sponsored by a variety of special interest clubs and organizations, provide the stu- dent with opportunities for exploring and devel- oping talents, making friends, realizing personal potential and experiencing a sense of community at the College.

Information about student government, student activities and student clubs and their membership procedures are available in the Student Life Office.

Eligibility Requirements

for ASB Senators and Officers All students are encouraged to participate in ASB affairs and run for an elected position with the organization. Candidates for an elective office must complete the required nominating petitions and meet the eligibility requirements before their candidacy is approved. Candidates must carry a minimum class load of twelve units and have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 to be eligible to run for senator and 2.5 to run for

president or vice president.

ASB Card Students may purchase an ASB sticker each semester for $5, which entitles students to a 10% discount at the Viking Shop on textbooks and dis- counts from local businesses, as well as free admission to BCC athletic events. Contact ASB for a list of businesses offering discounts and for more information about how to obtain an ASB card.

Student Hour The noon hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays are reserved for student activities. Clubs hold their meetings at these times. According to Board Policy, no staff/faculty meetings can be scheduled during student hour on Thursdays.

Campus Clubs Campus clubs are a great way to meet other stu- dents and share ideas and information. All stu- dent organizations operate under the umbrella of ASB. Each club has a constitution stating its objectives, membership criteria, and its organiza- tional structure. This constitution is subject to, and approved by, the ASB Senate and is filed in the ASB Office. Minutes of meetings, budgets and calendars of events are submitted at appropriate intervals to ASB.

Active student organizations are listed below. Contact the ASB Office at x7258 for more infor- mation on each club. Each club also has a mailbox in the Administration Mail Room.
