This study determined the students’ assessment and expectation relative to the activities of the student council, attitude of officers, and the Teacher Education Student Council’s (TESC) support to the college. Furthermore, this study also ascertained if there are significant differences in the respondents’ assessment and expectations when grouped according to profile variables. The descriptive research design was utilized in this research with a researcher-made questionnaire as the main data gathering instrument to gather pertinent data and information. The data gathered were analyzed using different statistical tools such as frequency, percentage, weighted mean, and rank and these were used to guide the researchers in the interpretation of results. The study found out that most of the respondents are female, second-year students specializing in Science and Mathematics Education. Moreover, the study revealed that the TESC’s activities are necessary and relevant to the college and that officers show a positive attitude; while in terms of the support to the college, it was revealed that the TESC highly presents the vision and mission of the college, thus fully supporting the department. Further, there is a significant difference in the assessment for activities when grouped according to sex, and officers’ attitude when grouped according to year level, activities, and support to college when grouped according to the field of specialization. The students expect that officers use their power to influence students in a good way. Thus, an action plan prepared by the researchers serves as the end-product of the study.
