These opportunities are promoted through the extra- and co-curricular programs such as student clubs and organizations, student senate, intercollegiate athletics, social programs, community service programs, and leadership experiences.

If you do not see a club that interests you at this time, feel free to contact the Student Life office to find out how to start a new one! We are located in the Student & Enrollment Services Center. Call 856-691-8600 x1454 for information or visit our office.
