    • Who We Are
      Inter-Club Council and Recognized Student Clubs and Organizations (RSCO) ICC Logo

There are a variety of RSCOs: cultural, religious, vocational, general interest, special needs, and scholastic. 
       
      The Mt. SAC Inter-Club Council (ICC) consists of representatives from each RSCO who share ideas and seek ways to better serve the College community.
