In many aspects, Cuyahoga Community College seems to serve one simple yet vital purpose: to educate. Tri-C gives students the opportunity and flexibility to design and personalize a two-year education track that fits their academic and financial capabilities. However, the extent of student involvement on campus seems to be limited, seeing as Tri-C is strictly a commuter-based college. Is student involvement something that can be improved upon?
“I wish there were more get-togethers or fundraisers. I was in Nerd club and went throughout the semester and it was fun and I get to meet new people.”
“I don’t necessarily take the time to read the posters. I see plenty of clubs and activities that I am invited to by email but I don’t see students getting together and making movements, where you would see at big universities. No one is fighting for a cause.”
“I get lots of emails, but seeing more posters would be a good thing just because I don’t check my email for a week. If I wasn’t married with kids- my schedule is busy as is, no matter how many cool things I would like to be or might be apart of, it wouldn’t work with my schedule.”
“Depending on what campus you’re at, the involvement changes. At this point in my life, I am happy with just being a student and my focus is not so much to be in a club. For the younger population it is important though, but I’ve already had the ‘college experience’.”
“I like it here…currently I am in Nerd club and Sustained Dialogue. I rarely see any posters of any club. I want to know what else is here.”
