Student Life/Dean of Students
Welcome to the Office of Student Life/Dean of Students
A significant amount of your college life will involve activities outside of the classroom by participating in student clubs, leadership roles, the athletic program, intramurals, civic organizations, attending cultural events, and living in or serving our community.
