Student Life

Winterblast Students

The Office of Student Life believes in the promotion of student success through campus involvement and leadership development.

Our office is home to campus programs, civic engagement, fraternity and sorority life, homecoming, leadership exploration and development, multicultural programs, non-traditional student services, registered student organizations, Spartan Speakers Lecture Series, student media, and Upstate expeditions.

Research shows that co-curricular involvement promotes academic success and  leadership development, while also encouraging students to connect to the greater campus community as they persist towards graduation.
