About Campus Life

At the Division of Student Affairs (DSA), we are committed to educating our students to be ethical and caring leaders. We envision a campus that nurtures and develops the whole person. The Office of Campus Life (OCL) fulfills these values by enhancing the overall co-curricular experience of students through the development, exposure and participation in programs and activities. Our OCL staff strives to improve student cooperation and leadership, while preparing students to be responsible advocates and citizens by complementing the institutions academic programs.
