Find a club to join! Central Piedmont has over 70 student clubs and organizations to help you get involved.

To learn more about a club, when it meets, or how to join, contact the advisor listed with that club. We do our best to make sure that all club information is accurate and available, but not every student organization is active every semester due to student leadership changes. For general questions, contact Student Life or clubs@cpcc.edu.

You can view individual club meeting dates on the student life calendar.
