Published: August 21, 2023

Are you looking to start a student club at College of Western Idaho (CWI)? If so, you're in luck! There are many resources available to help you get started. One of the best places to start is by setting up a meeting with CWI Student Engagement and Programs Coordinator, Erin Ortiz. Ortiz can help you with everything from brainstorming ideas for your club to navigating the paperwork required to get it approved.

Here are a few of the benefits of starting a student club:

  1. Forge lifelong friendships: Joining a student club introduces you to like-minded individuals, paving the way for meaningful connections, and building a strong network of support.
  2. Unleash your leadership potential: Running a student club is a great way to develop your leadership skills. You'll learn how to plan and organize events, manage a budget, and work with a team. These skills are valuable in both your personal and professional life.
  3. Make an impact on campus: Student clubs are a great way to get involved on campus and make a difference in your community. You can use your club to raise awareness about important issues, volunteer your time, or simply have fun and make memories.
  4. Boost your resume: Having leadership experience in a student club is a great way to boost your resume and make yourself more attractive to employers. When you're applying for jobs, be sure to highlight your involvement in student clubs and the skills you learned.

If you're interested in starting a student club or have any questions, please reach out to Erin Ortiz at or schedule a meeting with her.
