Getting students to participate in out-of-class activities seems to be increasingly difficult in the 21st century due to their combination of work schedules, family responsibilities, and apathy. This paper addresses how one Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) student chapter uses the NCC as a focal point for generating interest in club activities and incorporates out-of-class learning experiences for the student members into the monthly meetings to enhance their educational experience. Also addressed are the curriculum enhancements that facilitate the out-of-class learning experiences, the monthly meetings and an annual calendar for planning purposes.

Keywords: student clubs, Association of Information Technology Professionals, out-of-class learning experience
