ICC and Student Clubs

Student Clubs and Organizations provide opportunities for recreational activities, participation in community service, and exploring career and academic interests. All Hartnell clubs and organizations are part of the Inter-Club Council (ICC). Contact the Office of Student Life for more information on how to start a new club or student organization.

Panteras Guerreras

The Panteras Guerreras Club’s mission is to promote student activism for higher education, culture, the history of Chicanos, and solidarity with other groups of the minority. We strive to broaden the understanding of our Hartnell community by hosting events that incorporate our culture, history, and bring attention to the struggles that affect us as a minority.

Philosophy and Law Club

Pride Club

The Pride Club’s mission is to promote a safe space where students can be themselves. The Pride Club
emphasizes on LGBTQ+ related themes. However, while bringing awareness to our community, we also
realize the role of intersectionality. For this reason, we welcome all LGBTQ+ members and allies to help
make campus life more inclusive.

Sociology Club

The Sociology Club’s mission is extended into four parts: (1) Educating the student body and community about the social ongoing occurring in our community. (2) Giving our members real world experience in their chosen fields, by attending conferences and panels in which social issues will be discussed; also, by working with nonprofits, community organizations, and experts who have experience in the social sciences. (3) Working on social projects at a small and large scale in accordance to our current club members’ interests. (4) Helping our members reach their desired goals through active participation and expansion of their desired field of choice.

Spanish Club

The Spanish Club provides an opportunity for students to practice their Spanish language skills, and seeks to familiarize members with Spanish and Latin American customs, language, and literature.

Student Activist League

The mission of the Student Acitivist League is to get students involved with local activism and movements across the country.

Theater Arts & Cinema Club

The purpose of TACC is to promote the theater arts and cinema program, and inspire members to learn from these disciplines in order to educate and inspire awareness to issues that exist within their communities.


The TRiO Club’s mission is to help transfer students succeed. We attempt to do this in three ways: (1) We will provide guidance through educational and informative events like alumni panels, financial literacy events, and scholarship support. (2) We will provide a social atmosphere. With events like social mixers, game nights, and potlucks, we will work to create a safe space for students to make friendships and connections with other students. (3) We will provide emotional wellness events like support groups to relieve the stresses of college life. In such a way, we can promote mental health in college.

Writer's Guild

A gathering place for aspiring authors, where they can spread new ideas and uplift one another.
