What Is Student Life?
"Student Life" refers to the program that supports campus activities, student clubs and organizations, student government, and other special events like the annual graduation and scholarship ceremonies.
The philosophy of Student Life @ Coastline is to be as responsive as possible to students at the College. As such, students are encouraged to initiate, embrace leadership and community service opportunities, and work together as a team. The staff in Student Life are ready to support any student who has a new idea for a club, event, or other activity.
How Can You Get Involved?
You can apply to join the Associated Student Government ( ASG ). ASG is the official voice of the student body at Coastline Community College. ASG provides opportunities to learn about governance, advocacy, leadership, and event planning. Contact the advisor, Kasie Hipp Mirhashemi for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Join clubs like Psychology, English, Arabic, Latinas Con Nuevos Horizontes, Pride Club, Xploit (Cybersecurity Club), and more. Clubs are a great way to interact with other students at Coastline and contribute to making the learning environment more engaging.
Student Life @ Coastline supports the development of 100% or mostly online clubs. These are particularly challenging organizations to run, so it is recommended that you work directly with Student Life staff for support.
With ASG approval, officially represent the voice of the student body by participating in College Committee Meetings as a voting or non-voting member. These meetings occur once or twice a month and involve key decision makers at Coastline.
Community Service Program
Fall 2017 marks the beginning of a new program at Coastline Community College: The Community Service Program. This program supports multiple opportunities for community service. Students in special programs like College Promise, STAR 2.0, and others are highly encouraged to join in on the effort to help Coastline build bridges with local community service organizations.
The steps are easy:
- Choose An Organization to Contact from the List of Community Service Opportunities
- After Contacting Organization, Complete Community Service Log
- Turn In Your Logs to the Student Life/IRC Office or Email a scanned copy to email@example.com (refer to Community Service Program – Procedure)
Our hope is that many students in the Orange County area will take advantage of this opportunity to do community service.
If you have more specific questions about the program, feel free to contact the Student Life Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 714-241-6134.
