做好准备. 参与. 有所作为. Embrace and enjoy your world.

凯时登录, we are committed to providing students with a solid foundation for career and professional success.  凯时登录 is proud to say that 96% of graduates are successful in their chosen path, whether that be graduate school, 军事, 就业, 服务, 或以其他方式. (based on a 2019-2020 post-graduate survey).

By combining classroom learning with co-curricular experiences, we help students develop an ethos of real-world commitment. 学生事务 team members work closely with students to guide them in areas including civic engagement and citizenship, 职业准备, 大学生参与, 社区参与. Our goal with every student is to:

  • Emphasize the importance of developing and following a pathway for career and professional development;
  • Promote and recognize active engagement on campus, 在我们当地的社区, 我们的国家和世界;        
  • Recognize and affirm efforts to develop habits of leadership, 参与, 服务 and citizenship while acting locally or globally to improve our communities;        
  • Facilitate students’ personal and professional development by augmenting or supplementing classroom learning with rich out-of-class experiences;      
  • Track and document students’ growth and development throughout college life;   
  • Build awareness of the importance of positive action -- beginning with the self and extending to the campus, our community and our world;
  • Enhance prospects for success in an increasingly competitive world as the student presents prospective employers or graduate schools with a record of his/her accomplishments.



凯时登录 provides students with a coherent and manageable way to navigate the collegiate experience, which extends learning beyond the traditional classroom walls.

学生 who fully engage in the opportunities available to them will be able to confidently articulate their out-of-class experiences to prospective employers and graduate schools, and demonstrate that they have become well-rounded and marketable.
