Student Affairs & Retention
Student Affairs and Retention is fully committed to seeing students excel both academically and socially. Although education is the primary focus, we believe students grow and develop by challenging themselves, not only through academics, but also through college programs, activities and other co-curricular experiences.

Theres more to college than attending classes, studying and taking exams. Much of what you learn in college comes from experiences outside the classroom. By challenging yourself and participating in various campus activities, you learn valuable life skills such as teamwork, goal setting, effective communication, and time management.
Many students find others with common interests by getting involved on campus with activities/events offered by Student Life. Clubs, forums, musical entertainment, and other special events can provide opportunities for high quality fun at a low cost. The events are all coordinated by students, so you can get involved not only by participating, but also by producing the activities. Gain practical experience in leadership while having fun.
