It can be very easy to fall into a routine of traveling to campus, going to class, and traveling back home. Challenge yourself to find an activity or organization on campus. This can provide an on-campus support network, and a sense of a “home away from home.” Students who become involved on campus are more satisfied with their college experience, and do better academically.

It is the goal of Off-Campus Student Life to offer dynamic services, facilities, and programming that cultivates transformative learning experiences, higher satisfaction, higher retention, increased matriculation, and increased connections with faculty, staff, and peers.
