Office of Student Activities and Leadership

The Office of Student Activities and Leadership is a student-centered office located on the first floor of the J. Millard Tawes Center. We are an office that enhances and compliments the academic experience for the CSU student body through an extensive array of cultural, education, recreation, social, special CSU traditions and leadership programs. By offering these programs and services, we create an environment for individuals to interact and learn from one another. This office also works to help improve upon students social life, gain self-confidence, acquire leadership skills and learn how to function as a member and/or leader of a group or a team. Through service to the campus and community, we foster interactive and developmental experience in leadership, programming, and service.

Student organizations exist to support and enrich the academic experience for our students. Extracurricular activities include concerts, dances, lectures, movies, bowling, skating, comedians, and other live performances. Students not only have the opportunity to participate in these extracurricular activities, but they can help plan them as well.
