Greetings from Student Life

Dear Student:

It is a pleasure to welcome you to the campus on behalf of the staff of the student life division. Whether you are a new or returning student, I hope you take full advantage of the many student life programs and services that are available to you.

There are approximately 50 groups and clubs on campus in which you can become involved. In addition, for those who also enjoy participating in or watching athletic events, there are 18 men's and women's intercollegiate teams and an extensive intramural program. Concerts, plays, lectures, film series, and art exhibits are also offered throughout the year to enhance a student's life outside the classroom experience.

In order to encourage student participation in the extracurricular programs offered by the university, a community time period has been implemented every Monday from 11 am to 12:30 pm. This is a time when no classes or labs are scheduled and students are encouraged to become involved in one of the many planned activities.

There is a broad range of support services available to you including career advisement and assistance, professional counseling, health care, on campus housing, mediation and conflict resolution services, a shuttle service to area shopping centers and other points of interest, spiritual guidance, public safety programs and dining options.

This year we have have added Greek life to the campus with the establishment of two colonies representing national fraternities and one colony representing a national sorority. To learn more about them, contact the student activities office in the campus center.

The Compass has been specifically designed to assist you with any questions you might have regarding the many non-academic offices and activities that the university provides.

My best wishes for a successful academic year.
