Who are We?
The Office of Student Life crafts a culture in which students are makers of their own learning experience. We support, engage and challenge students to become creative citizens of their community. In collaboration with students, we complement their creative journey through co-curricular initiatives and experiences: new student orientation, student activities, student organizations, student governance, and commencement.
- Civic responsibility encourages the development of self-knowledge and ethical awareness that leads towards positive expression.
