Join the KRC Student Union!
The KPC Student Union represents the student body statewide with the UA Coalition of Student Leaders, advocating for students on campus and within the UA system, and is available and eager to carry the student voice to the community. Student fees support the student union, and activities are coordinated and held to enrich campus life. Monthly and seasonal events are organized for the enjoyment of all students, fundraisers for scholarships and legislative action are held and Student Union officers coordinate community-wide student discount programs. Students are encouraged to get involved as representatives.
The Student Union provides opportunities to gain leadership skills and experience by providing you the opportunity to represent fellow students and to make a difference on campus by giving input regarding changes in policies, procedures, programs, etc. You can also gain recognition, improve your self-image, increase personal growth, and learn how to work as a member of a team. Training and workshops provide knowledge of parliamentary procedures, the legislative and budgetary process, advocating skills, problem-solving, and business/communication skills.
The KRCSU meets at 3:15 p.m., every other Wednesday, in the McLane Commons, starting Sept. 5.
Check out the most recent meeting minutes.

President: Dennis Sweitzer
I'm Dennis Sweitzer and I am the President of the KRC Student Union. I just started my second year at KPC. I plan to transfer to UAF for electrical engineering next fall. I grew up in Valdez then moved to Las Vegas when I was 14. After six years I moved to Soldotna for college.
As president, I hope to assist my colleagues in their work. My job involves mostly paperwork and behind the scenes jobs, so I have plenty of time to help in my co-worker's projects.
Vice President: Eric McKamy
My name is Eric McKamy. I am the KRCSU vice president, coordinator. This is my third year at KPC. I have been working toward a two-year associate of arts degree, but have switched gears and am now seeking a bachelors in applied sciences with an end goal of becoming a pilot.
As the vice president, I hope to schedule and achieve more events that involve students, such as food events and socials, and more open mic nights. I am open to any and every suggestion for these events, so please don't hesitate to float them all my way.
