Through these activities, hundreds of HFC students promote education, discussion, cultural awareness and service opportunities every year. Among the many clubs at HFC are the African-American Association, Community Service Club, Future Teachers Association, Math Club, Philosophy Club, Phi Theta Kappa, Science Association, Society of Manufacturing Engineers, Student Nurses Association, and Women Tech Club.

The Council of American Cultures sponsors tours, films, guest speakers, and presentations on culture, religion, and political systems from all over the world.
