For most students, Kirkwood Community College is a two-year destination. However, the experiences gained while attending college can last much longer for those involved in extracurricular clubs and organizations. 

Kirkwood offers clubs and organizations to all students, though some are tied to specific courses of study. 

Seth Vander Tuig, associate director of Student Life, said, "We have over 80 clubs on campus. We don't expect every student to join every club, but we know we have a club for every student." 

Kirkwood offers clubs for theatre enthusiasts, future fashion and interior designers, environmentalists, philosophers, conservation officers, 3-D artists, livestock judges, nurses, surgeons, Democrats, dancers and many others so all students may find a club of interest.                      “I think [joining a club] can help further down the road,” said Mark Skor, Computer Science. “If a club interests you and that’s what’s important to you, then it can further your interest in something,” he added. 

Students are also welcome to start a new club. Vander Tuig stated there is a process for students who want to start a new club. With an advisor, at least ten students, and approval from Student Life any group can become a Kirkwood club.
