The Student Life Office


Questions about life circumstances and the impact on your academics? Curious about transitioning into our local community? Considering taking a leave of absence? There are times during our scholastic journey where we must resolve issues outside of the classroom or make some tough decisions.

"At first I was scared of asking for help, but help is all around me on this campus."

- Xong Chang '18

Our residential and co-curricular programming reinforces and supports student learning by linking students’ residential and academic classroom experiences. We help students develop and utilize life skills such as critical thinking and thoughtful decision making that reinforces the conversations taking place in their classrooms. Students can come to our office to seek support in times of crisis or distress, to obtain a leave of absence or withdrawal, during conduct proceedings or for any support related to the student experience

Collaboration in Action: A Visit to the Arts and Crafts Program

Bright welcoming hallway. Photos of the Southwest capturing calm, colorful scenery. Beautiful pottery surrounded by leaves. Silk tapestry swaying gently overhead. Students surround a table, chatting and laughing while working on homework. This atmosphere greets anyone visiting the Arts and Crafts studios. Students attend classes and participate in studio time for weaving, screen printing, felting, silk painting, tie dye, batik, and knitting. Each course provides space for students to express their creativity and imagination.
