Student Affairs

College is a rich and multi-faceted adventure, shaped by experiences learned both in and outside the classroom. Participating in an intramural sport, writing for the student newspaper or serving as a cabinet member for Student Government Association can influence your interests, provide practical skills and experience, and enrich learning. The Division of Student Affairs supports these experiences by engaging students outside of the classroom through 23 departments. Let’s explore and grow together.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month
To promote awareness about the issues of sexual assault, intimate partner and gender-based violence on college campuses, the Women's Center and Victim Empowerment Program, together with many other university departments and student organizations, will facilitate a series of events during the month of April, which is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Interactive events and visual displays will be available campus beginning April 3-April 21.
Refresh and Destress Late Night at the Rec Center
On Monday, April 24, the Wellness and Recreation Center – MMC will be open for 24-hours hosting special events like midnight yoga and other stress relieving activities.
