Get involved and get the most out of your college experience. Opportunities outside of the classroom provide ways to enhance academic growth, develop leadership skills, meet other students, or just have fun. Studies show that the most successful students and those who enjoy their educational experience are the students that get involved!

Student Senate

The Student Senate is responsible for coordinating student activities on the campus. Recommendations for improving the educational and social aspects of campus life may be submitted through the Student Senate. Each program is encouraged to have representatives participate in Student Senate. All meetings are open to everyone.
