Campus Life

At NTC, we believe that a college education is more than what you learn in your classes. Campus activities provide opportunities to develop leadership skills, to cultivate civic responsibility, promote service to society, and facilitate interactions with fellow learners, faculty, and staff outside the classroom setting.

Clubs & Organizations

Student Senate serves to represent the learners enrolled at NTC. Membership is elected from each program area. Officers of the organization are elected by the majority vote of the enrolled learners. Student Senate aids other learner organizations, establishes the protocols for campus sponsored activities, promotes good conduct, and allocates funds for many worthwhile projects. The Student Senate belongs to the Minnesota State College Student Senate Association. 

Phi Theta Kappa is a national honor society for learners in two-year colleges. Phi Theta Kappa's purpose is to provide leadership opportunities, recognize and encourage scholarship, and foster opportunities for fellowship. To be eligible, learners must be enrolled in an AAS or AS program, have completed at least 12 credits, and have at least a 3.5 GPA. NTC's chapter of PTK is Beta Nu Tau.  Sue Sutton is the current advisor.  You can reach her at (218) 333-6626.

Student Nurses Association's mission is to excel in nursing education, extend a helping hand through community service, and care for others beyond all expectations.  Previous activities have included bingo nights in locat nursing home, support and assistance with Special Olympics and tour of a medical chopper from the perspective of a flight nurse.  Teri Finn is the current advisor.  You may reach her at 218-333-6630.
