The student activity program has grown from a conviction that education is not restricted to scheduled classes, that the hours outside the classroom are of major importance and that the student activities program can give a new dimension to education.These activities expand the means through which the College educates.

The activities program is planned and implemented, in large part, by students involved in clubs and organizations. These social, cultural, and recreational activities enrich the lives of those participating and give student leaders the opportunity to plan and implement programs. This responsibility helps students build character, develop greater understanding of others, learn leadership skills, and have a greater sense of their own abilities.

To be eligible to serve as a campus-wide student leader, students must comply with the College policy on "Eligibility for Student Leadership Positions."
