Student Life

Take Advantage of the Opportunities
Class isn’t the only place where you’ll broaden your mind. Explore dozens of student organizations and activities, and nine NCAA Division III sports. Our Office of Student Development makes sure your campus experience is the best it can be.

College—a 24/7 Experience

Take Advantage of the Opportunities

Whether you’re editing the yearbook, making friends in choir or running for student government, you’ll feel the support of our close-knit community.

Developing a Complete You

Everything You’ll Need to Thrive

Living on Campus

Living on campus makes it easier to forge connections and immerse yourself in student life—and it makes you more likely to stick to your educational goals. 

Getting Involved

What you do outside of class is just as important as your coursework. Whether you love furry creatures, community service, the arts, or you want to build up your resume, advocate for change, or create amazing experiences, there's an opportunity for you.

Student Organizations

Our collaborative, encouraging environment means you’ll find support to pursue activities that reflect your interests. Gain confidence through the Phoenix Leaders Program, perform in plays, join the gaming club—or even form your own club.
