Student Clubs & Organizations

Students interested in forming a club or other organization can learn about the process from the Student Services Office in Valdez or by visiting the Student Services web page. Organizations at the Copper Basin and Cordova extension campuses are encouraged. PWSCC clubs may be formed to cater to a wide range of interests, from activist groups to club sports to quilting clubs. A limited amount of financial support is awarded each year by Student Government to student organizations who submit club approval forms early, while funding lasts. Student groups must be approved by Student Government and on record to use any college resources or facilities for meetings and events.

Phi Theta Kappa: Phi Theta Kappa is a nationally recognized honor society with the following mission: “The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa shall be to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa shall provide opportunity for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals, for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.” Phi Theta Kappa’s mission is two-fold: 1) to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and (2) to provide opportunities for individual growth and development through participation in honors, leadership, service, and fellowship programming.

Membership is based primarily on academic achievement. To be eligible, students must be admitted into an associate degree program, have completed at least 12 credit hours, and have a grade point average of 3.0. Students from all campuses are eligible and encouraged to apply. For more information contact the PTK advisor.

Archery Club: Prince William Sound Community College is proud to be the first and only college in Alaska approved by USA Archery to have a Collegiate Archery Program (CAP). USA Archery is the organization which governs the US Olympic Archery Team, and promotes target archery and other arrow sports, including Bowhunting.
