Vice President of Student Life - Alex Casado
Welcome to the Office of Student Life! Our board is comprised by the Athletics Committee, the Sustainability Committee, and the Cultural and Diversity Affairs Committee. Throughout the year, the Student Life Board seeks to assess and better the on-campus student experience outside of the classroom. By building relationships and trust among students, faculty, staff, and administrators, we gain an understanding and appreciation for the many factors that can affects a student’s experience. While we support the collective student voice, we recognize and support the unique and individual experiences of each student.
Committee Co-Chairs - Zachary Shear & Ben Zusmann
The athletics committee seeks to increase enthusiasm among students for sporting events and improve the gameday experience for all students.
