Student Life & Clubs
Welcome to Student Life & On-Campus Clubs
Taft College’s Student Life Program is designed to engage students in extra-curricular activities that enrich their intellectual, ethical, and social development. The area of Student Life is committed to providing a variety of arenas where students have the opportunity to practice student self-governance, learn respect for diverse groups, learn civic responsibility, and develop life skills to carry on beyond college. Through student activities, student equity, and work-study, students are encouraged to grow as leaders and to improve on or develop the following components: ability to provide direction, to lead courageously, to foster teamwork, to motivate others, to build relationships, to coach their peers, and to act with integrity.
