In support of the educational mission of the University, Sykes encourages and provides an environment where everyone on campus can gather to participate and learn through diversity and co-curricular experiences. Sykes provides services, conveniences, and facilities designed to support the needs of West Chester University and the community. The Union further strives to maintain a balance of recreational, social, educational and cultural programs and activities. Sykes Student Union promotes the development of the whole student by enhancing the classroom experience through experimental learning opportunities.
