Student Life

There are several ways to be involved in student life. Here are some great ways to see yourself in student life. Please click on the information below and learn just a little about each resource. 

The Associated Student Government (ASG) Executive Board officers at LWTech create opportunities for student involvement, represents student's issues to the administration, works to create a positive and inclusive student environment, and manages the services and activities budget that support many events and services for students. LWTech ASG Executive Board work impacts our campus in many ways. Being involved with ASG is easy. ASG is located in East Building, E126.

Join a committee, attend a meeting, or provide a suggestion are some ways to be involved.

Campus activities provide events, activities, and resources for LWTech students that enrich our campus life and community.

The purpose of these events, activities, and resources are to

  • Connect students to our campus
  • Provide opportunities to meet and socialize with other students
  • Introduce students to new ideas and cultures
  • Support students’ interests and identities
  • Contribute to students’ academic success

Each quarter these events are created by our student Lions CREW Team, for their peers. We encourage all students to take advantage of campus activities.

If you’ve been to the East Building mall would’ve walked past the RISE Center, you can find them in the East Building, E126. RISE stands for Resources for Inclusion, Support, and Empowerment, their aim is to build an equitable and inclusive campus environment for all students.

The RISE Center is a support service for students from traditionally underrepresented and underserved backgrounds, such as:

  • Students from minoritized ethnic/racial groups
  • Students with disabilities
  • First-generation college students (those who are the first in their family to attend/graduate from college)
  • Undocumented students
  • Members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) community.

The RISE Center holds events and programs that allow students to learn and discuss topics in a safe space.

If want to find other folks interested in similar ideas as you check out clubs. If you like making games, check out the Game Development club. If you want to create with 3D printers and laser cutters, join the Makers club. If you're passionate about quilting, the Quilts In Common club is for you. You can see a list of all the current clubs at the club's webpage. If you don’t see a club on the list that suits you, start one. It’s a simple process, the clubs page has that information.

If you are a full time student this quarter (taking more than 12 credits) and get a GPA of 3.5 or more, you will get an email in at the beginning of the next quarter inviting you to join Phi Theta Kappa. Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is an academic honor society that recognizes and encourages scholarship among two-year college students. To learn more about joining, contact Julie Ta. To learn more about LWTech's chapter visit the Beta Iota Tau Chapter webpage.

The supportive staff connects Veteran students to their educational benefits. The Veterans Services team is dedicated to the educational, health and wellness, and transitional needs of today’s veterans. If needed, the staff connects veterans to Federal, State, and County resources (i.e. housing, counseling, and employment services). We are more than a center of learning; we prepare our students for what lies beyond. The Center offers safe space for Veteran students to lounge between classes, store food, use computers. The center also provides services like specialized advising, collection of local resources, and priority registration.

The Wellness Center is open to all enrolled students and is open from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m in East Building, E116. Access is paid through a $20.00 fee collected every quarter in tuition. The Center has circuit training equipment, free weights, cardio equipment, lockers and showers, towel service, and a coordinator to assist with wellness focused goals.
