The most successful students are those who spend the 70% of their time outside of class wisely. Employers continue to look for college graduates with a wide range of experiences and leadership skills.

Students are encouraged to Become More while in college by getting involved in a wide variety of campus opportunities. The Office of Student Life has over 400+ student organizations. There are groups for everyone- from sports, to professional, to hobbies, to interfaith, and more.
