The Division of Student Affairs has accomplished many things over the past few years. Listed below is a selected summary of accomplishments detailed in the 2010-2011 Annual Report.

  • Student Affairs led University efforts to identify a new campus food service provider; Sodexo was ultimately chosen.
  • Registration and Records implemented a 24/7 on-line student self-service transcript ordering and payment system.
  • Residential Life & Housing created a peer mentor program, in which live-in peer mentors would operate a peer mentor lab for students that need assistance with academic tutoring.  This lab also doubles as a computer lab for residents.  This lab continued to flourish during the past academic year, which leads the department to hiring additional peer mentors.
