Our Mission & Vision
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.
We envision a vibrant campus life that provides opportunities for all students to engage through social and recreational activities through clubs and organizations, and a coordinated schedule of College Activities sponsored cultural, educational, social and service-focused programming.
College Activities is always interested in working with staff and faculty to bring quality programs and speakers to our campuses. Ideas are welcomed and encouraged. Contact the College Activities Office to find out more.
Student Clubs and Organizations
College Activities is the hub for student clubs and organizations. Learn all about the active clubs and organizations on campus at the Club Fair each fall and spring semester. Clubs’ and organizations’ contact lists and meeting times are available in the College Activities Office.
