Student Activities

Alumni Network

A robust alumni network is a vital link to SCC's past and an important factor in building the reputation and financial health of the college. The network is also a resource for SCC alumni seeking to build their professional networks, becoming involved on campus, or just having fun and reconnecting with fellow Hawks.

The SCC Alumni Network was founded to promote and facilitate a lifelong relationship between SCC and its former students and to encourage ongoing support for the college. Alumni are former students who have graduated, transferred or received a degree or certificate. Students who have completed significant coursework at SCC may also be considered alumni.

The list of benefits of being an SCC alumnus continues to grow. For more information, email

Associated Student Government (ASG)

The Associated Student Government was established to provide students with government and leadership experience. Opportunities are available to become involved in campus and statewide committees and councils as student representatives. In ASG, students learn firsthand about group dynamics and decision making, program planning, and running effective meetings. Additionally, there are many student clubs and organizations to join. For more information please visit or call (714) 628-4913.

Academic Competitions


Forensics is more commonly known as competitive speech and debate. The SCC Forensics team was one of the first signature programs to be offered when the college was first accredited. Members of the team travel to local tournaments on select weekends and perform persuasive speeches, debates, impromptus, poetry, drama, and many more. This co-curricular activity provides students with an excellent opportunity to stand out on transfer and job applications. Forensics teaches skills that are useful in any industry, but are particularly well-suited for students that are seeking careers in broadcasting, law, politics, and public relations. The team is open to all students, and students with no prior experience compete against other beginners at their first tournaments. For more information, contact Jared Kubica-Miller at

Model United Nations

The award winning Santiago Canyon College Model United Nations (MUN) Team offers students the opportunity to simulate the policies and processes of the United Nations and its various agencies, including non-governmental and inter-governmental organizations. Students participating in MUN enroll in Political Science 150 or 250 where they prepare for individual and team MUN events. Through these classes, students learn about the role of the United Nations in world politics by conducting research, writing resolutions, and _developing skills in diplomacy, public speaking, bargaining and negotiations. Students participating in MUN are required to attend intercollegiate United Nations conferences and competitions. For more information, contact Professor Rabii-Rakin at (714) 628-4940.

Intercollegiate Athletics

Santiago Canyon College, home of the Hawks, is proud of its athletic teams and their rich athletic history. The college has fielded teams since 1999 and now offers competitive opportunities for student athletes in seven sports: men's and women's cross country, men's and women's soccer, softball, and men's and women's volleyball.

The Hawks compete in the highly competitive Orange Empire Conference (OEC) under the auspices of the California Community College Athletics Association. SCC's outstanding coaching and teaching staff, combined with an excellent system of academic assistance, has helped eligible students transfer to four-year colleges and universities.

The facility includes a fully equipped fitness center, strength lab, aerobics studio, men's and women's locker rooms, athletic training facilities, three indoor courts, a swimming pool and administrative offices.
