University Events

The departments within the Division of Student Affairs host a variety of events and programs for students and families throughout the year. A few of these departments pair up with student organizations to plan and coordinate events to promote these organizations, and also provide learning opportunities outside of the academic setting. A few of the university's large events are highlighted below.

House Calls

The Residence Hall House Calls program is designed to reach out to residence hall students and give them an opportunity to interact with faculty, staff, and administrators on a more personal level. By visiting individual rooms in the residence halls, volunteers welcome students, help determine if they need any assistance, and answer any questions they might have.
