For many Irvine Valley College (IVC) students, one of the most important aspects of their time at IVC is their participation in the college’s revered Model United Nations (MUN) program. The IVC MUN team participates in and wins awards at conferences each year. The program, established in 1997, allows students to learn about and experience the processes of international democracy through role play.
Irvine Valley College (IVC) hosted a meal distribution event on November 22 in the Student Services Center Quad.

Each student received a holiday meal pack, important resources on Financial Aid and CalFresh, student hygiene packs, and a range of information on student support services.
The IVC Speech Team finally had a chance to test their skills at their first tournament of the academic year at the 2021 PSCFA Warm-Up Tournament, held on October 2-3. Sixteen colleges and universities came together to compete at the event, with five students representing IVC. Despite the usual challenges of being virtual, IVC Forensics came out ahead by winning three awards in debate and limited preparation events.
