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."

the income from student activity fees among the other student organizations,makes
recommendations concerning the conduct of the student body, recommends policies affecting
student life, and, in all ways, represents student interests.
There are two campus publications: Vignette, the weekly newspaper and the annual literary
magazine produced by the Creative Writing Club.
