Clubs & Organizations
We have over 25 student clubs & organizations at Cincinnati State College. While all are not active, all it takes is 10 interested students and an advisor to reactivate a club. New organizations also need 10 students and an advisor who work together to create a constitution. Guidelines for starting a club/organization are available in the Student Activities office, Room 204, ATLC Building. Clubs are also eligible for funding during the regular academic year.
