Student Engagement

Awards Program

During the program, individuals are recognized for their academic achievements, participation in student organizations, and contributions to the college & community. The Blackhawk Technical College Awards Ceremony takes place in late April.  

BTC Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors are a select group of students who represent BTC, as well as their own programs, to our student body and local communities. They serve as orientation leaders, tour guides, group facilitators, and assist with the many events that take place on campus. Ambassadors develop leadership and teamwork skills that will benefit them in their careers. Candidates are selected through a screening and interview process during the spring semester.


The Blackhawk Technical College Mentoring program provides students the opportunity to connect with other BTC students, faculty, and staff to enhance student success while attending the College.  Students are paired with a student (peer) or staff member who ensures students are connected to resources and services that will assist them in meeting their educational and career goals.

Student Representative to the District Board

BTC was one of the first technical colleges in Wisconsin to formally have a student representative to the Board. Elected by the Student Government Association, the student representative serves in a non-voting position & acts as the liaison between the Board and the student body. The term of office is one year with elections held annually in the spring.

Student Network of Activities and Programming (SNAP)

The Student Network of Activities and Programming (SNAP) plans campus-wide social, recreational and educational activities. This committee is open to all students. Student members are involved in choosing entertainers for campus programs, and marketing and promoting campus-wide events. Students will gain professional experience in marketing, planning, negotiation and communication.

Volleyball Court

A sand-pit volleyball court is located west of the Commons on the Central Campus. Constructed with funds designated from the Student Government Association, the volleyball court provides recreational activities for students as time permits. Those interested may check out volleyballs from the Student Success Center with a student ID.
