Interest Clubs

Clubs created by students who share an anything at all!

Come write with us! Improve your skills and meet new friends interested in writing poems, short stories, plays, monologues, rants, journals, or whatever works for you.  

We have weekly writing meetings throughout the semester. We talk about writing and give you prompts to inspire you. You can share your work, too, if you want. Everyone is always welcome at any meeting – including first-timers and drop-ins.

Throughout the year we hold a variety of related events such as Spoken Word Poetry Open Mics and our Flash Fiction Contest. You can also participate in the publication of Pulp City, HCC's art and literary magazine. We want to hear from you!

The HCC Democrats Club seeks to connect HCC students with the same opportunities other college students have to get involved with our political system through campus advocacy on a local, state, and national level in the Democratic Party. Our purpose is to give students the chance to educate others, and join campaigns for and express their support for democratic principles such as: freedom, equality, justice, and opportunity for all people. We believe it must be done fairly and without inequality based on race, religion, ethnicity, gender, class, or sexual identity. It shall be a club that while full supporting democratic values welcomes students with a diverse range of opinions and perspectives.

Our purpose is to share our knowledge and interest in photography. We meet weekly to discuss different topics and issues in regards to techniques and trends in photography. We plan and participate in local events about photography. Members don't need to be professional photographers to be part of the club; you only need to be interested in photography.

HCC's radio station, WCCH 103.5 FM, provides a variety of music to the public. Student and staff DJs are on the air throughout the year, serving news, sports, music, and a community calendar. The station is student-run and streams live on the web 24/7. The radio station is located in DON 101, near the Student Lounge.

Why Be a DJ?

The Radio Club is a terrific way to learn about broadcast media and improve communication skills. DJs are enrolled in any area of study – not just pursuing careers in media, music, or communications. DJs go on to work at local stations, in voiceover, and in the music/production industry. Each chooses their own music and show time; the schedule changes each semester. Opportunities for leadership are plentiful and the station is student-run. Some staff and faculty have shows as well.

Consistent with the goals of the Wildlife Society, we work to provide opportunities for improved communication among local members and those in other chapters, augment the educational opportunities in natural resources, prepare members for careers in this area, encourage professionalism and high standards of scholarship, and foster campus awareness of wildlife issues.

To this end, we've brought programs to HCC such as the wildly successful Birds of Prey, Zoo on the Go, and Animal Craze.
