Co-op Student Council (CSC)

The Co-op Student Council is an organization run by co-op students that provide a voice to co-ops.  We help many prospective co-ops through the processes of interviews, resume writing, and all aspects of the co-op experience.

Who are we?
To put it simply, we are to co-op students what the SGA is to the rest of the student body: a group of representatives from all classes interested in your needs. We are "regular" students just like you who deal with the concerns of co-op students.

What do we do?
We act as liaison between co-op students and the SGA and the administration, dealing with any issues that affect co-op students, whether they are on a work term or a study term. We also act as the governing body on campus over the summer, taking on such responsibilities as the Sunday coffeehouses and planning trips like whitewater rafting and events like SOAKEN.

What are the benefits of being on the Co-op Student Council?
Being a member of the Co-op Student Council has many benefits. First of all, you will develop leadership skills and how to deal professionally with other people and organizations. You will gain experience in planning events and trips, and accounting for anything that could go wrong. You will learn what it is like to be a part of a governing body that is working for the benefits of others. You will also be able to participate in activities such as officer's luncheon at the end of the spring semester and whitewater rafting over the summer.
