It is our mission to foster a dynamic environment in which students are the central focus and are provided the opportunity to become engaged throughout their SWIC experience. College Activities strives to enrich a student’s development in the areas of social engagement, community responsibility, diversity, leadership and personal and professional development through a broad range of programs and services.
