College is what you make it! Get involved in one of our student organizations to maximize your fun.
Student Ambassadors are a select group of Salkehatchie students who assist with recruiting new students to the campus and making sure the community is aware of the value of our institution. Ambassadors assist with taking visitors on campus tours, making visits to area schools, and representing the institution at community events.
Candidates must be recommended by a member of the faculty or staff, have been a student for at least one semester, be a full-time Salkehatchie student in good standing, and have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0. Ambassadors should enjoy working with people, be interested in serving the University, and be excited about sharing their experience as part of the Salkehatchie family.
A total of 29 students from two houses (one Allendale and one in Walterboro) make up the SGA. Each house is comprised of a vice president, secretary, treasurer, parliamentarian, and 10 senators, all united under one president. The campus of the president alternates each year, with Allendale holding the seat in odd years and Walterboro holding it in even years.
As a member of SGA, you will represent your fellow students’ ideas or concerns during weekly meetings with your house and formal meetings with the entire SGA and school administration.
The SGA is not all work and no play! SGA members plan and participate in various student events, charity fund-raisers, and seasonal parties throughout the year.
From Christmas toy drives in the winter to Wet ‘n Wild Waterfest in the Spring and everything in between, SGA makes student life fun!
The Education Majors Club was founded in the fall semester of 2003. The club is open to any student seeking a degree in education. The purpose of our club is to keep students informed of curriculum requirements, changes in curriculum and testing dates. For the 2005-2006 academic year, we will meet the second Wednesday of each month at 12:15 p.m. in room 214 on the East Campus.
Every month during the academic year the Education Club participates in an activity which benefits a local school. During the fall, we have a school supply drive and a canned food drive. In the spring of 2005 we participated in the March of Dimes Walk for Colleton County. Be sure and read “Salk Talk” or stop by the Education Club bulletin board in the main hallway in Walterboro to see a listing of upcoming Education Club activities.
The Education Club is designed to keep students informed of testing deadlines, application information and curriculum or course changes.
A nursing club was organized in the 2008 academic year, and membership is open to any student seeking a degree in nursing. The purpose of the club will be to provide nursing majors with information and community service in the field of nursing as well as to keep members informed of changes that may occur in program requirements and deadlines.
A history club was formed to promote the discussion of history and to provide presentations and programs from a historical perspective. The group meets twice monthly and is open to any interested students.
