Student Association

Charter Oak State College building

Charter Oak State College Student Association 

The Student Association was formed to enhance the student experience and encourage connection.  Additionally, it provides workshops, networking opportunities, a vehicle to advocate for change, and more.  The Student Association council members consist of 6 to 8 officer positions and an administrative adviser.  They work closely with the Alumni Association to offer support to Charter Oak State College's education and service goals, providing a bridge between students and alumni. The Student Association generally meets every second Tuesday of the month* at 6 pm and is open to all matriculated students. (* Special Events may override the monthly meetings; please email sapresident@charteroak.edu for confirmation that the meeting is going to be held and to RSVP.)
