Experience Life Beyond the Classroom

“Getting involved at ICC is crucial. If you just come to school for your classes and then immediately leave, you’re not giving yourself the chance to connect with other students. You don’t really get the college experience.”
– Morgan Tighe

Student life is how you get connected at ICC. We have a multitude of clubs, activities, and recreational groups available to help you meet new people and grow. From politics to music to sports to cultural events and more. Find new interests. Take on a leadership role. Achieve more. Make the most out of your time in college.
