In April 2013, the Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) Women’s Golf Team hosted its first Arizona Community College Athletic Conference tournament at the Palm Valley Golf Course.
The EMCC Women’s Golf Team played every Monday at the Palm Valley Golf Course in preparation for the tournament and Head Coach, Steve Almanza, thought that the home-turf advantage would help.
The practice gave the players familiarity and consistency in a game that can be tricky at times.
Fashion is something that has been a part of our culture for thousands of years. In the 1800s, it was petticoats and ball gowns; in the 1920s it was red lipstick and flapper dresses. Society is obsessed with looks, beauty, and the clothes people have on their backs.
Some people go a bit too far (like wearing a dress made of meat), but if it gets the attention of anyone who matters in the fashion world, it is considered a score. Whatever is considered “fashionable” can take time to come into popularity, but it can also change drastically within the course of a few days.
You may be sitting at home while reading this article, but to the over 1,600 homeless veterans in Arizona, there is not a home to go back to.
20 percent of homeless individuals in Arizona are veterans, according to USVetsInc.org., an issue that the Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) Veteran’s Club takes to heart.
The Veteran’s Club was signed into action at the beginning of October but has already started an initiative that will greatly help veterans in the community.

This is just one incident of unfortunate occurrences that plague adolescents who reveal themselves to be members of the LGBTQ community. Happenings such as this one are frequent to those who choose to “come out”, as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.
Schools such as Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) have clubs to give common ground and support for those who identify as LGBTQ, such as the PRIDE Club. The term PRIDE is commonly used for many LGBTQ organizations.
As college students we all want to meet new people, get involved with the school, and have fun. The best way to do all three of these things at the same time would be to join a school club.
Now when it comes to joining a school club you have to make sure you pick the perfect one for you.The sensible idea would be to choose a club related towards one’s passions and field of study, such as a theater major joining a drama club.
