Club Rush for the spring 2018 semester has come and gone. It is not too late to join clubs though.

Riverside City College has a variety of clubs to join in almost every subject, major, or career choice.

Choices range from the Art Club to the Film Club to the humanitarian areas like Student Orchestrating Change Club to business-oriented subjects like Cyber Security Club and CEO Club.

The opportunities are vast with each club, with chances to make a difference in your community or to network in your career market.

“We offer the opportunity to learn leadership skills to help [students] in their own careers and personal life,” Yvette Ayuso, CEO Club president, said.

This year will mark the first time that RCC’s CEO Club will participate in a “Shark Tank” type competition and the invitation to submit a business idea is extended to any student of any major. This club has internship programs and opportunistic events, like many clubs do.

If you are a technologically inclined person, Cyber Security Club may be something interesting for you.

“We reach out to the community and schools to bring awareness of data protection,” said Nichole Madero, president of Cyber Security Club.

The club also participates in cyber security competitions like the National Cyber League which helps create better data protection software and protocols.

The Film, Television, and Video Club is made up of students who seek to enter the filmmaking market.

The club strongly believes in the building of a community of students that can help each other in the film production process.

Like other clubs, FTV Club offers the opportunity to network and build a portfolio.

For the film industry, and other art related occupations, portfolios can make or break a career.

These are just a few of the many clubs to choose from or be a part of. There is no limit as to how many clubs you can participate in.

Each club offers great career opportunities that benefit RCC students with community hours, personal skill development and networking.
