Student Life

Campus Events

The Student Activities Director works closely with students and groups on campus to organize events for students on campus. We are always looking for great ideas from students on things they think the campus may enjoy. Over the years we have put on ping pong tournaments, video game tournaments, superbowl viewing parties, and many outdoor activities that our students can participate in. 

Pep Band

The ICC Pep band performs for football and basketball seasons. They perform in several parades including the Neewollah Grand Parade. The concert band rehearses during spring semester and performs at the spring music department concert. Soloists and small ensembles perform both fall and spring concerts.  Instrumentalists also have the opportunity to perform with musical theater productions.  

Student Ambassadors
