How to Start a Club at MiraCosta College
The mission of the Office of Student Life & Leadership is to develop MiraCosta College students’ identity awareness, cognitive skills, interpersonal competencies, and leadership skills through experiential learning and co-curricular activities on campus and in the community.
All MiraCosta College students are members of the Associated Student Government, which supports the projects and programs of many clubs catering to students with interests ranging from Business to Community Service. You can join — or lead — any of these organizations. Clubs meet the social and intellectual interests of students at MiraCosta College.
