Your HFC Student Council welcomes you to the Fall semester!

The Council serves as a representative body for all students. It links students to faculty, staff, and administration, and the broader community. Its purpose is to advocate for students' concerns and suggestions in an organized and effective way.

For the current semester, the Council meets every other Thursday until December 7 in the Hawks’ Nest (Room L-138) of the Andrew A. Mazzara Administrative Services & Conference Center (ASCC) (Building L) on the main campus.

The Council is looking for officers and representatives to help ensure continuing leadership. Joining the Council offers YOU a leadership opportunity to collaborate and network with your peers, forge meaningful relationships, and establish a sense of camaraderie.

This academic year, the Council is seeking to fill the Vice Chair, Secretary, and several Representative positions.
