While much of the college experience takes place inside a classroom, an integral part does occur outside the classroom through co-curricular activities. It is these activities that Student Development and Campus Activities strives to encourage and support. This office is responsible for assisting, coordinating, and guiding the operation of student organizations. In addition, this office organizes the summer, fall, and spring orientation programs for new students, and provides a leadership training program for student leaders. You are invited and encouraged to visit the Student Development and Campus Activities Center on your campus with questions concerning student organizations and events.

The Student Development and Campus Activities Center is responsible for:

* advising student government, the yearbook and the school paper
* managing the Eddie Layton Student Union, Spotlight, Kessel Student Center, and Briarcliff Commons
* administering the financial obligations of clubs, organizations, newspapers, literary magazines, yearbooks, and radio stations
* all campus student organization postings
* approval of all student events and activities
* programs and services for commuting students
* leadership opportunities and training
* student development transcript
* college ring orders

Student Clubs, Organizations, and Media

If you wish to expand your academic activities by participating in curriculum-related programs, you may join groups that feature speakers, films, and lectures related to individual fields of study. Special interest organizations are not associated with the curriculum; groups with common interests such as politics, religion, and social concerns are included. Should you wish to form a new group or wish to join an established organization, you should contact the Student Development and Campus Activities Center on your campus. Minimum requirements for new groups include a list of potential members and a designated faculty or staff adviser.
