Students are encouraged throughout their course of study at Oconee Fall Line Technical College to participate in student activities and student organizations. It is our belief that students who participate in organizations, activities, and programs outside of the classroom learn by doing and build essential leadership and life skills in the process.

Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership (GOAL)
First launched in 1971, GOAL focuses on student excellence in technical education by focusing on academic excellence and personal achievement. A panel of judges selects one student, the state GOAL Winner, to serve as an ambassador of technical education in Georgia.
Goal Winners represent the "new image" of Georgia's technical colleges. Students must recognize technical education's critical impact on Georgia's overall economic health: have strong work ethics, a dedicated sense of loyalty, and a healthy enthusiasm for promoting technical education in Georgia.
