Resources from the Office of Student Life

For Student Club/Organization Officers and Leaders

Being actively involved in activities and organizations outside of the classroom is crucial aspect of the college experience. Extracurricular involvement allows students to become more engaged with their field of study, immersed in an organization that stimulates the development of career aspirations, provides them the opportunity to learn more about other cultures, or simply develop an interest that could become a lifetime hobby. 

This is where you, the student leader, come in. You may have had a strong desire to be an officer of your organization or you may have been thrown into the position and reluctantly accepted because no one else would step up. No worries! The Office of Student Life has created resources for you to guarantee that you will be able to run an effective and sustainable club or organization.
