The majority of students on campus are involved in activities beyond their academic work—and this is a good thing. The undergraduate experience is about getting a good education, but it's also about growing as a person. Very often outside activities carry over into academic work—and vice-versa—in a very positive way.
Activities within the Residence Halls
