Student Government

Student Government actively seeks to supplement the academic atmosphere with intellectual, cultural, and social activities. Student Government members are involved in all Pierpont Community & Technical College aspects of life on campus and work cooperatively with the college administration.

Every segment of the student body is represented in the Government. Members are elected each spring by the student body and receive special training for their positions. The association comprises a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Communication Officer, and Student Senators. The Student Involvement Coordinator serves as the advisor to the Student Government Association. 

Student Government meets every other week. All general meetings are open to the student body. The Executive Board meets on the off weeks. 

Clubs, Honorees and Social Organizations

Organized clubs and honorary organizations for the promotion of interests in various academic fields, the recognition of outstanding achievement in various campus activities, and for general social purposes are available for student participation. A list of currently active organizations can be found online. Students wishing to organize a new club or organization are highly encouraged to do so and should speak with the Student Involvement Coordinator. 

Intramural 

The Intramural program offers a variety of recreational opportunities for students, faculty, and staff. Various activities are organized for competitive play among groups, individuals, and organizations. Events such as flag football, basketball, bowling, softball, golf, spades, soccer, volleyball, and foul shooting are some of the activities offered.

The philosophy of the Intramural program is to provide every student, faculty, and staff not engaged in varsity competition an opportunity to participate in a variety of competitive recreational sports in a safe environment; to facilitate the opportunity for camaraderie; and to create opportunities for healthy lifestyles and physical fitness. It is the goal of the department to foster sportsmanship, fair play and respect for competition through a diverse variety of organized sports and recreational activities.

Any student who is assessed student fees and has classes on the Fairmont campus is eligible to participate in both the Intramural program and Club Sports teams. Students who are not assessed the fees (due to all classes being held at other Pierpont Campuses) can go to Student Services to discuss other options if they’d like to participate in Intramurals or Recreation. At this time Pierpont does not offer inter-collegiate sports.

Student Activities

The Office of Student Activities offers various events and activities that are open to all students. They provide a wide range of opportunities for students to get involved and build inter-personal relationships all while maintaining a fun and entertaining environment. To stay up-to-date on all that Student Activities has to offer, check your student email, official Pierpont social media, or our Student Activities Calendar.
