Activities & Organizations

Learning Outside the Classroom.

We strive to promote student growth and development by facilitating the educational process with opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to interact in a variety of informal settings. We encourage student participation in these diverse cultural, social, educational, and recreational activities. These activities include the Back-to-School Icebreaker, the Multicultural Luncheon, Hanging of the Mittens, and more.

Organizations

The Henderson Community College Campus Crafters seeks to promote an enjoyment of various arts and crafts and offers students an opportunity to learn new crafts or art forms or to allow student members to teach the group about the crafts they already enjoy.  The emphasis is on projects that are produced in a single sitting and use inexpensive, readily available supplies and recyclable items. While students with artistic talent are certainly welcomed, NO artistic ability is required in order to enjoy membership in this club.  The Campus Crafters generally try to hold meetings (where we craft) a few times each month, plus help out with school events where we can.
