Cowley College Tigers are respected competitors each year in all programs as the awards displayed in W.S. Scott Auditorium will attest. All Cowley College sports programs are successful in the conference, the region, and at the national level.

College athletes are expected to be students first, with their participation in athletics a part of a well- rounded educational experience. Their personal conduct is expected to be in the highest tradition of amateur athletics. To be eligible for competition in events sponsored by the college, the athlete must conform to the rules of the NJCAA and of the KJCCC. Athletes must be a high school graduate or have received a high school equivalency diploma, or be certified as having passed a national test such as the GED.

Student Activities

A well-rounded program of intramural sports and recreational activities is offered at Cowley College. The activities program provides opportunities for fun, exercise, skill development, and socialization for college students, faculty, and staff. Some of the activities provided are professional performances, dances, winter homecoming activities, Intramurals, free movie nights, and free bowling nights. The Cowley College Student Senate works in conjunction with the activities director to establish the monthly activities. New activities may be added during the year as the demand and popularity dictate.

Cowley College Student Senate

The Cowley College Student Senate (CCSS) is an important and necessary group in the operation of student and college activities. Students are represented on key policy developments through CCSS members. With the assistance of a sponsor, CCSS organizes and sponsors a variety of student activities, represents students on faculty-college committees, charters student organizations, conducts all student elections, and provides an avenue for student opinion in the area of curriculum development. CCSS is the official voice of the student body and is composed of the President, the Vice President, the Secretary, and the Treasurer, representatives from each college student organization, and members-at-large. The four officer positions are elected each spring by the student body, faculty, and staff.

Alumni Association

The college welcomes former students to visit campus to keep abreast of changes and to be aware of what is available for continued enrichment and growth. All alumni are asked to keep in touch with the college in order to receive information on opportunities available for alumni. A file of current addresses is maintained, and a semi-annual Tiger Alumni News is mailed out and can be accessed on the Web.

Class reunions are held periodically, and an Outstanding Tiger Alumnus is honored each year at Commencement.
