What is SAT?

SAT's task is to develop a well-balanced calendar of activities and events that include speakers, musicians, comedians, dances, films, outings and tournaments.

In addition to these activities, team members support campus clubs and organizations, theatre productions, musical performances held by the college's music department and various other groups. Students who serve on this team receive a broad range of experience in event planning, promotion, publicity, and public relations. 


SAT's weekly meetings are open to the student body, and any interested student may attend. Any student who wishes to have an item placed on the agenda should contact the SAT. SAT members are required to maintain a minimum of ten hours per week in the office or at events. The members' work schedules are posted on the office door and also in the Student Life and Involvement Center.

Interests/hobbies: Penguins, ukuleles, and reptiles

Why you came to CC: I came to Centralia College because this was the best option for me. I was unsure what I want to be. Centralia College let me find myself and what I want to do. It was also close to home which gave me a support system for my studies.

What do you want to be when you grow up and how CC is going to help you achieve your goal? I want to work in higher education. Centralia College is helping me achieve this by having the Bachelor of Applied Science - Applied Management degree available for students. With the skills and education I get from the degree, I can get a job in higher education and go for my master's degree.

What are you looking most forward to being on SAT? I look forward to another year of exciting events and working with a wonderful Student Activities Team.

Why you came to CC: One of the biggest reasons I came to Centralia College was because it was local. I was also able to improve on my previous grades to become a better student overall and really get a feel for what college is like!

What do you want to be when you grow up and how CC is going to help you achieve your goal? A nurse is what I hope to become when I am finished with all my schooling. Centralia College is helping achieve that goal by offering a degree plan with all the required prerequisites to (hopefully!) transfer onto my next adventure.

What are you looking most forward to being on the SAT?I look forward to the different kinds of events that will be offered to the students this year and becoming more involved within the campus atmosphere!

What do you want to be when you grow up and how CC is going to help you achieve your goal? I want to get as many experiences from life as I can. CC has already given me many great experiences and being on SAT this year will give me the opportunity to gain so many more experiences to carry with me and help decide what I want to do in the future.

What are you looking most forward to being on the SAT? I am so excited for the events and activities we are going to bring to the campus this year, and I can’t wait to do it with my amazing team!
