Student Life Board

The Student Life Board is made up of students and staff members from the college. Their function is to support educational clubs and groups on campus. Upon receiving requests, the Student Life Board is responsible for disbursing student life fees to campus organizations for their activities. Student members of the board are selected by the campus Student Senate.

Student clubs and organizations are expected to report their activities to the Student Senate each month by completing the form below. If there is no activity, clubs are still expected to report.
