The mission of Campus Life at JCC is to design and promote out of classroom opportunities, experiences, and services for students that will allow for academic, personal, and professional development. Collaborative campus life programming at JCC allows students to participate in a variety of co-curricular and social options that support the mission of the college, complement academic programs, and enhance their overall educational experience.
The campus life offices on the Jamestown and Cattaraugus County campuses coordinate leadership development opportunities, service projects, and a variety of student activities and events each semester in collaboration with the Campus Activity Board and other campus partners. The college-wide student activity hour (Mondays and Wednesdays from noon to 1:15 p.m.) enables JCC students to participate in these activities, which include guest speakers, comedians, musicians, poets, intramural sports and college-wide traditions. In addition, clubs and student organizations often hold meetings and host campus activities during activity hour.
