myCCBC Student Life portal:  After many months, the Student Life office officially has a community on the CCBC portal, MyCCBC.  This is a VERY exciting initiative with a goal to provide one place for current students to go to get all information on Student Life.  The site is live and can be found at:  https://myccbc.ccbcmd.edu/group/student-life/home (please login before clicking the link). Once there, you will find 4 menus items on the left side to include student leadership, civic engagement, first-year experience and student life staff along with the main page.  Please join us, as this will be a central page for student organization information to be housed.



Student Clubs & Organization

With some student organizations setting up to meet in person, and some setting up to meet virtually, we want to continue utilizing the Microsoft Teams platform to help student organizations connect and share resources, regardless of if they are meeting virtually or in person.  Each student organization has a channel in the Microsoft Teams platform to help you connect with other group members, share files, chat, and create an easy video conferencing opportunity.  In both a virtual or in-person environment, this will allow easier and increased communication between student groups centered on each campus and between campuses to help you connect and collaborate. You will need to login with your CCBC credentials to enter and join. Please visit the Student Organization Team at: https://tinyurl.com/CCBCstudentorganizationsBelow, please find a list of student organizations and contact information for their advisor(s).  Meeting times are still being set up for many of these organizations, but please do not hesitate to connect
