Academic Civic Engagement through Service
The ACES Program involves active participants in the local community, selflessly giving of our time and talents. We are not just volunteers, but students with a unique opportunity to challenge ourselves outside the realm of academia. Connections are made (through reflection logs, journals, class presentations, meeting with instructors and meetings with other students) between classroom work and work in service. We also take an active role in teaching others—in our classes, in our friendships and in our communities.

Collegiate Quiz Bowl
This student activity was incorporated by the Kansas State Department of Education to showcase quality teaching and learning at the community college level.
In the fall and spring semesters, students participate in scrimmages and regional and state competitions with other community colleges in Kansas. At the state competition, student teams have the opportunity to win from $400 to $800.
Since no individual is an expert in all subject areas, this is a collaborative team effort.
