One of the most important aspects of the Student Activities Office is involvement. Student activities is an important part of the college experience for students. Not only does this part of our office provide programming for all students on campus from clubs and organizations, but we also play a definitive role in the leadership development of all students involved in clubs and organizations. Our office provides comprehensive leadership training throughout the year with the following programs:
Student Leader Welcome Back Dinner
This dinner is held each September and we welcome every student leader back to campus. A keynote speaker presents on various topics such as goal setting or motivation to get everyone ready for the new year. Our office also updates the leaders on any new information, events, and leadership trainings that may be happening during the year.
Student Leader Getaway
Held each February at an off campus location, student leaders can get away from campus and learn more about themselves as a leader while meeting and bonding with many student leaders from other student organizations. This two night retreat is a great way to get the spring semester started.
Helping Emerging Leaders Progress (HELP)
This emerging leaders program is held for eight weeks in the Spring Semester. It is primarily geared toward freshman and sophomore students who are interested in becoming student leaders in clubs and organizations on campus. Broad topics such as time management and teambuilding are presented.
Art of Leadership
This experienced leaders program is held for six weeks in the fall semester. It is primarily geared toward juniors and seniors. Advanced leadership topics are discussed such as ethics, leadership styles, and gender and leadership. Second semester sessions focus more on preparing student leaders for a career and includes topics such as networking, resume critiquing, and interviewing skills.
