Office of Student Life
The Division of Student Life provides services and activities that both support and extend the educational mission of Southwestern University.
Acquiring knowledge in a classroom is just one part of what takes place during college. Building character, becoming an active citizen and developing leadership skills all play important roles in the educational experience. One of the most important challenges students face is finding congruence between values and behaviors. The Office of Student Life aims to engage and support every student in a positive way throughout this extraordinary life-changing time, ensuring that the uniqueness of each individual is respected and celebrated.
Many of Southwestern’s high quality student life programs have achieved national recognition. Health and counseling services, intramurals and recreation activities and diversity education programs have all been recognized nationally for excellence by the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators. Southwestern’s career services was ranked 7th in the United States by the Princeton Review, and with Southwestern Police Department’s excellent work, the University received an A+ safety rating by the College Prowler.
