Aeffia Feuerstein was named one of the Coca-Cola Foundation Bronze Medal Scholars, a national award issued to a select group of students to help further their undergraduate studies.

At RCC, we take pride in offering student groups and academic organizations to further learning outside of the classroom. Get to know about a few of our clubs directly from our students.

Muslim Student Association

Our Muslim Student Association (MSA) is fully committed to educating both Muslims and people of other faiths about the culture of Islam, and facilitating programs that benefit every student on our campus. In a recent collaboration with the Muslim Justice League and the Society of Professional Journalists, the MSA hosted “Press & Speech: Freedom & the War on Terror,” a forum discussing ways the war is being used to restrict press freedom and police social media content. The event offered a space for healing and reflection to its attendees. “We are trying to bring new experiences to campus and get the campus community together,” says Shugufta Butt, president of the Muslim Student Association. “It’s about uplifting one another and dispelling stereotypes about Muslims and Islam.”

Phi Theta Kappa

As members of the prestigious Phi Theta Kappa Alpha Iota Mu Chapter, RCC students have access to a network of like-minded learners who share an interest in academic excellence.

Being a part of the Iota Mu Chapter has given students like Aeffia Feuerstein and Delores Manning opportunities for individual growth and development. Both Manning and Feuerstein were named to Phi Theta Kappa’s All-Massachusetts Academic Team in a ceremony at the Massachusetts State House in March of this year.

Student Government Association

RCC’s Student Government Association (SGA) serves as the official student voice to the RCC Administration, the Board of Trustees, and the Massachusetts Board of Community Colleges. The mission of SGA is to earnestly represent the interests of students and increase student engagement by focusing their efforts on creating and continuing viable and effective student services, preserving and protecting RCC, and supporting students and student organizations in their academic and community endeavors.
