Student Activities

Most of the departments in the College of Liberal Arts have either a student association or honors organization which provides students with a program of activities. Students should contact the department of their major to inquire about the kinds of organizations available to them or contact the College Coordinator for Student Life and Development at 985-5814.

The College and Associated Students promote the College Student Council with its representation from each department acting as liaison between the College administration, faculty, and members of the College's student body. The Student Council provides a forum for the development of student leadership skills.

Internships

The College of Liberal Arts offers internships with on‑ and off‑campus cooperating organizations designed to provide students with practice in the field under supervision. Many individual departments also offer discipline‑based internships for advanced students.
