Student Life

What is Student Life? Student Life is the living and learning that takes place outside of the classroom, and it’s a big part of your college experience. It includes service, leadership, friendships and that hard-to-define essence that makes college more than a collection of courses or buildings.

Those involved in student groups or volunteering in the community can attest to the satisfaction they experience. By combining the skills you learn through co-curricular involvement and your classwork, you will be better prepared to enjoy college, develop your potential and get that job.

So join a club. Be a student government leader. Keep abreast of performing arts and lecture series. Just hang out with other students and staff at the Student Life Office.

Student Life can help with all of these, and more.

Office of Student Life: Connecting Students. Developing Leaders.

College life can be a lot of things; rewarding, stressful, beneficial, and difficult all rolled into one. Here at the Office of Student Life we want to help our students to create and maintain a meaningful college experience. With our students as our main focus, we offer lots of different on campus activities. Those can range from important cultural awareness events to stress management seminars and even good old fun filled student appreciation parties. Along with our student engaging events we also offer many services and resources designed to develop leaders, encourage student bonds, personal enrichment, and involvement within the college.
