Student Clubs & Organizations
The student activities are designed to enhance student learning. Getting involved in campus activities is an excellent way to meet people with similar interests and talents, as well as provide students with an emotional and social outlet. Experiences gained can also be beneficial to students when seeking employment after graduation, as employers value people with varied interests.
The SGA is designed to promote the general welfare of the College in a democratic fashion and to facilitate communication between the student body, the faculty, and the administration. The Student Government Association provides a means through which students can promote interest in student activities both on and off campus. The president of the SGA serves as the student trustee on the College Board of Trustees.
