Student Life

The more than 30 departments within the Office of Student Life are dedicated to helping students achieve success. Each student's needs and background are unique, and each department offers a variety of support and services to help them be successful.

Our programs and services foster student learning and development, enhance the educational experience, and prepare students for their chosen professions and to be contributing members of a diverse global society. Our offerings are backed by research and supported by data so that we can respond to and anticipate evolving student needs.

The Student Life staff is well-trained, and our initiatives are designed to help students transition into and through college and prepare them for a lifetime of learning and contribution. We provide opportunities that complement and enhance the academic curricula and help students overcome obstacles. We operate many of the programs and services of daily life, including on- and off-campus housing, dining, recreation, diversity, inclusion, and equity, student involvement and engagement, health care, counseling, career development, and multiple opportunities to develop leadership and citizenship skills and experiences.
