At The College of the Florida Keys, going to college is about more than just going to classes. That’s why we encourage student and faculty participation in extracurricular activities and organizations. The following clubs are currently registered and chartered at CFK and are open for membership by any CFK student who has enrolled in at least two courses during the academic year.

Its duties shall also include coordinating student activities, promoting an intellectual interest in all phase of the college life, increasing the sense of individual responsibility among the student body, and encouraging cooperation between the students and the administration. The SGA shall act as a liaison through which student issues, thoughts, and concerns are conveyed to the administration, faculty, and staff.
