Student Life

Make the most of your college experience.


The Office of Student Life provides the opportunity for students to meet new people by getting involved on campus.

Attend events ranging from cultural, educational, and entertainment activities to service-oriented and recreational events. Join a club to connect with fellow students who share your interests, or join a new group you think sounds interesting. Looking to hone your leadership skills? Consider representing the student body as part of Palo Alto College’s Student Government Association. There is a place for everyone to get involved at Palo Alto College.
