Student Clubs and Organizations

Student Association

The Student Association (SA) represents the study body and acts as a liaison with the college administration. The SA will oversee all Trocaire clubs and organizations and offer opportunities to be involved on campus. The SA encourages student involvement and empowers students to pursue their own interests.

Any current Trocaire College student with a 2.0-grade point average (GPA) is eligible to become an Executive Officer (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer) or Representatives At-Large.

Student Association Members:

President: Angelea Smeal

Treasurer: Brittany Hyatt

Secretary: Sabrina Shareef

 

The unique size of our college allows students to participate in different clubs and organizations and take on leadership roles if they wish to do so. The benefits of becoming a student leader are tremendous – skills that will last a lifetime. Here are some reasons to get involved:

  • Learn new skills and use the skills you have
  • Receive awards and recognition
  • Have a sense of accomplishment
  • Build your self-esteem
  • Have a voice!
  • Meet new people
  • Leave a legacy (leave Trocaire better than you found it)
  • Transfer schools (four year schools will ask what you were involved in)
  • Build your references and make contacts
