What to Do with Downtime


If you’re looking to learn a new skill or to become a part of a community that shares your interests, joining one of the many clubs at SCC may be the place to start.

Individual club focuses span from hiking to fencing, ukuleles to culture, and now even dance and choreography. If you’re looking for a little extra involvement, certain clubs are also seeking student officials to operate within the clubs.

For the recreational athletes, check out the:

Intramural Club with activities put on by teachers such as Stacy Attridge and Megan Toney. These activities include yoga, pilates, personal training, nutrition coaching, swimming and more, with the necessary equipment being provided by instructors.

Specific dates and times for each activity vary and can be found in the top floor of the Gym building on the bulletin board.

Hiking Club, which is looking to coordinate one day hike and one overnight trip for this quarter. For these events, the club will meet with its members to evaluate the needs and ability of the group when deciding on a specific hike. Transportation and food for the outings will be provided by the club. The Hiking Club is also looking to fill positions for president, vice president and secretary. 

Fencing Club, where you can learn the basics of fencing and advance your skills with the experienced fencing instructor, Mahlom Dunnell. Don’t know what to bring to Fencing Club? All you need are some comfy shoes and the rest is provided by the club, Dunnell said.

“Where else can you poke metal sticks at people and have it be sanctioned and encouraged?” said Michael Clayton, a participant in the Fencing Club demonstration.

Fencing club is planning to meet at 1:45 on Friday in room 3025 but has potential to be changed.

Dance Club
, which is for anyone looking to dance or choreograph dances. The club is planning on meeting twice a week for two-hour practices.

For musicians or those of you looking to learn an instrument, you may be interested in the:

Ukulele Club, which is a community of learners both experienced and inexperienced, according to Cory Anthony, the club adviser. Ukuleles are provided but if you have your own, feel free to bring it. The club meets weekly from 4-5 p.m. on Thursdays in Room 1104.


If you’re looking for a club that celebrates culture and community, try:

Project Pride, a safe space for LGBTQ and ally students that looks to build awareness about their community and host events such as the Prom taking place on June 1 in the PUB Main Dining Room.

Project Pride meets 12:30-1:30 p.m. every Friday in room 1103.

International Club which hosts events to introduce and connect SCC students through games like Jeopardy and culturally themed festivals with free food. The International Club is also searching for a president and vice president.  

Their first meeting will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Monday, April 30, in Room 1515.
