The CCBC student body has a wide selection of activities and clubs to get into. All it takes is a sign-up sheet and fresh ideas. Each club has its own unique spark, and students join the clubs that are most compatible with their personalities. In each club, students get a sense of identity and can meet new and exciting people. In the Sankofa Coalition, the members focus on African American issues and discuss the current events that are happening in the African American community. With the newspaper, reporters and writers join together to give the entire student body the hot topics of the month, while discovering talents for writing and future careers in journalism or media relations. Other notable clubs students get involved in are the Student Government Association, the Rainbow Club, and the Gay/Straight Alliance.
Organizations where students can learn and apply their skills include the Honors Program and Phi Theta Kappa. For each organization, students must be up for an academic challenge and be able to keep their grades up to at least a 3.5 GPA. These students are the "leaders" of the student body and are always setting examples for their fellow classmates. They learn all there is to learn in honors classes and apply their new knowledge into a career of their preference. When a student works hard in an academic department, that student will definitely be rewarded when he or she steps foot into the real world.
