Make unforgettable friends and memories at OLC

With nine district college centers, an extension in Rapid City, a college center in Eagle Butte, SD on the Cheyenne River Reservation, as well as nursing and masters programs, OLC is proud to celebrate the spread of unique skills, talent, and personalities that exist across Braveheart territory. To be sure the wants and needs of the student body are collectively met, OLC offers students the opportunity to get involved at their respective college center or in their degree program as members of the student organization.

By getting involved in the student organization at your respective college center, you’ll have the opportunity to shape the student experience by engaging the interests of your fellow students through fun student activity programming. Whether it’s organizing a fundraiser or a social event, you’re sure to leave OLC with an infinite list of memories when you get involved..

Representing the overall interests of OLC students, each college center, as well as the nursing and masters programs, have their own unique student organizations that are made up of enrolled students in each degree program who come together to make all the magic happen. 

With opportunities to serve in a leadership role as a member of your student organization, you’ll shape the future of OLC, its student activities, policies and more! What’s more, your ability to represent the student body can go even further through involvement in the Oglala Lakota College Student Senate.

Serving as the liaison of student interests to college administration/faculty,  OLC Student Senate works with the college to improve campus life across all reaches of Braveheart territory. Student representatives from each organization also serve on the Piya Wiconi Okalakiciye, a campus organization created to provide a forum for addressing college-wide concerns, making policy and procedural recommendations to the president of the college and, through the president, to the Oglala Lakota College Board of Trustees.
