Welcome to student life at Trocaire College. A large part of your college experience takes place outside of the classroom. Whether it is becoming a student leader, attending different activities or events, or volunteering your time, they will all add to your overall Trocaire experience.
The unique size of our college allows students to participate in different clubs and organizations and take on leadership roles if they wish to do so. The benefits of becoming a student leader are tremendous - skills that will last a lifetime. Here are some reasons to get involved.
Learn new skills.
Use the skills you have.
Receive awards and recognition.
Have a sense of accomplishment.
Build your self-esteem.
Have a voice!
Meet new people.
Leave a legacy (leave Trocaire better than you found it).
Transfer schools (four year schools will ask what you were involved in).

As you can see there are many reasons to get involved within the Trocaire community. If you have any questions, would like to get involved or just want to say hi, the door to the Student Activities Office is always open for you.
Student Activities Office
The Student Activities Office works closely with students, clubs, club advisors, and student leaders to provide co-curricular activities and leadership opportunities throughout the year. These activities provide Trocaire a sense of community and add to a students overall college experience.
This office is responsible for the coordination of all the student organizational sponsored programming on campus. A student activities scheduling board is located in our office. In order for an event to be posted, a Facility Use Form must be filled out and submitted to the Student Activities Coordinator.
The Coordinator of Student Activities is also the advisor for the Student Association.
The New Student & Transfer Orientation also is coordinated through Student Activities. Orientations are held during the summer prior to the start of the fall semester and prior to the start of the spring semester.
We are also responsible for the coordination and distribution of the Trocaire College Student Handbook.
