Well they said the gateway for entry to the general public of the  
school would not be able to join in on such a group. The  
administration are bunch of closed minded mouth breathers. Its what  
happens when you have a rather conservative minded group of people in  
charge. They have five different christian organizations who are  
allowed to used state provided funds for club organizations yet when  
they tried to put in the student muslim association you don't even  
want to hear the stories I heard from friends who tried to start that.  
Anyway AACC is what it is, Another Appalling Community College. What  
few amazing teachers they have there they pigeon hole and make it  
diffcult to have anything new. Ask Prof. Seabrook his story about  
trying to get his python class. I'm glad I matriculated to a big kids
