Student Activities

Mission Statement

The mission of the Office of Student Activities is to involve and support students in extra-curricular activities which will help develop life skills such as critical thinking, effective leadership, problem solving, decision making, goal setting, cultural appreciation and the ability to relate with people who are different from oneself.

This mission is accomplished through exchange of information and participation in experiential activities which ensure:

  • an opportunity to participate in student organizations which represent a multitude of student interests.
  • an opportunity to participate in the process of student government.
  • an opportunity to participate in all-campus activities and initiatives.
  • a challenge to attain advanced levels of performance of those skills which are learned in the classroom.
