Activities available for International Students

The higher education system in the USA believes there is more to college than attending classes, studying and taking exams. Much of what you learn in college comes from experiences outside the classroom. The College has a department called Student Life that organizes and promotes out of class activities.

There is something going on every day including the weekends, It is easy to get involved with other students who share your interests. The majority of the programs provide opportunities for high quality fun at a low cost. From your first day on campus to your last day on campus there is an activity or program for you.
