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.

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.

OSL Mission Statement
