Student services

The goals of the Division of Student Affairs are to facilitate student development, celebrate differences, and promote civic and global responsibility in both formal and informal educational experiences. The Division accomplishes these tasks through utilizing best practices as identified by international higher education professional organizations to create evidence-based programs and services.

Housing services

While there is no residency requirement, those of us who work with college students firmly believe that living on campus has a positive effect on students' academic success and successful transition to college. There is longstanding research which shows that students who live in a residence hall for at least one year do better academically, are more likely to graduate on time, and look back on their total experience more favorably than those who never lived on campus.

I enjoyed the chance to explore topics that I found interesting with professors and students who were passionate as well. The pandemic made learning more difficult in some ways, but the online format is much more familiar now. Financial stress also made focusing on academics a bit more difficult.
