Student Government Association

The Moore County Campus has plenty to look forward to with five SGA members attending the Texas Junior College SGA State Convention March 29 through April 1.

Moore County SGA also will sell Valentine treats the first week of February as a fundraiser for the club.

“We are also doing an Open Mic Night this semester for anyone who wants to sing, play an instrument or perform some sort of comedy routine on stage,” said Vicki Swiedom, an advising associate and head of the Moore County SGA. The Open Mic Night date has not been determined.

Moore County SGA also plans to put on a car show and volunteer for the Special Olympics in April.

Melissa Bates, assistant director of academic services, said Moore County SGA members will attend the Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert in Amarillo March 25.


Biology Club

Vicki Swiedom, an advising associate and head of the Student Government Association on the Moore County Campus, said a few club activities and intramural games will take place this spring.

“The Biology Club recently started meeting and are meeting every Wednesday at 5 p.m.,” Bates said.


Intramural sports

AC’s Moore County Campus offers coed intramurals for students throughout the academic year.

In the spring, students are welcome to participate in intramural basketball at 8:30 p.m. Thursdays at Dumas High School.

Intramurals are open at no cost to students enrolled at AC.


Student Support Services

Student Support Services will have programs for students in need of help or guidance in time or stress management, building a resume and other areas.

Toward the end of March, a program called “Needs and Wants and Prioritizing What Counts” will be offered to those who need help prioritizing tasks and other areas of life.

In the first part of April, a program called “Monitoring Spending” will be offered.

Closer to the end of the semester, Student Support Services also will have programs for solving debt problems and interview do’s and don’t’s.

The Moore County Campus has been a permanent AC campus for a little more than a decade.
