Student Activities: An Overview

Student Activities at West Chester University encompass a wide range of cultural, social, educational, and recreational programs for a diverse student population. The Student Services, Inc. (SSI) Office of Student Activities takes a leadership role in organizing and sponsoring joint or individual projects as part of its mission. One major role centers on the advisory relationship with the Student Activities Council (SAC), the major student activities organization on campus.

The Office of Student Activities oversees current movies, Homecoming, concerts, trips, national and cultural entertainment, and special events. The office has also recently collaborated with Sykes Student Union in coordinating Sykes After Dark; a weekly, late-night programming series. The office is located in 236 Sykes Union; the phone number is 610-436-3037.
Students can become a vital force on campus through participation and involvement in campus activities and student organizations. All students have an opportunity to attend campus events and join an organization that meets their individual needs. Students are encouraged and have the opportunity to assess all programming, making sure that the products presented serve their best interest and personal development.  Leadership roles are always available; these opportunities to be active can become one of the more enriching experiences in student life. Becoming involved builds individual self-esteem and a sense of community – two important qualities that enhance a student’s life.  Student activities are the lifeblood of any campus environment, and West Chester University has many such opportunities.
