The Deputy Recruiters are a group of CWC students that have been selected by the Admissions Office to serve as official hosts and student representatives of the College.
The Deputy Recruiters are not a club, but rather an employment agreement between each member and the Admissions Office. All members are expected to fulfill all obligations and responsibilities, as with any other job.
Recruiters should have experiential information to share with prospective students. This may include everything from living in campus housing, eating at dining facilities, experiencing the campus life, to adjusting to new study habits.
They are also trained to share factual information about campus offerings and policies. They are aware of programs currently being offered at the College, including academic, athletic, student activities, as well as other Student Affairs programs.
Applications for Recruiters open in March, interviews are conducted in late April, and Recruiters are hired for the entire next academic year.
Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) is a student-initiated and student-run club where LGBTQ2 and other interested students can meet in a safe and supportive environment to share ideas, hang out with allies and educate the community on what it is like to be a non-traditional student.
The idea is to work for educational justice by creating a school environment free of discrimination, harassment, and intolerance. The club at CWC is regenerating and hopes to organize in coalition with other groups across identity lines to address broader issues of oppression and education. Meetings are Wednesdays from 10-11am in MH 200E.
The club is open to all interested students. We are hoping to make connections statewide to develop community awareness, fun activities, and fundraising events full of leadership opportunities. Safe Zone Training for CWC Campus is on the list of possibilities!
