Student Activities and Organizations

Mission Statement

The Student Activities department complements the student's academic experience through the development of, exposure to, and participation in social, cultural, multi cultural, intellectual, recreational, community service and campus governance programs.

Opportunities for the development of leadership, social and interpersonal relationships, skills and character are offered through participation in recognized campus organizations.

Included among these are professional and honorary societies related to the academic areas of the college, departmental organizations, service and social organizations and recreational groups.

Each organization, in fulfilling its obligation as a part of the college, has a faculty member, staff member, or administrator as an advisor.

All social activities planned by the student organizations are held under the supervision of the organization's advisor.

To inquire about creating a new organization, please contact the Coordinator of Student Activities, Room E-306 or (815) 224-0509.
