Real experiences in and outside the classroom

College is a rich and multi-faceted adventure, shaped by experiences learned both in and outside the classroom. Participating in an intramural sport, writing for the student newspaper or serving as a cabinet member for Student Government Association can influence your interests, provide practical skills and experience, and enrich learning.

The Division of Academic & Student Affairs supports these experiences by engaging students outside of the classroom through more than 50 departments. Let's explore and grow together.
