Involvement in activities and organizations can be an important step in enhancing and reaching your educational goals. We want to help you foster and develop interpersonal and leadership skills for your success on campus as well as later in your career.
The Office of Student Activities works with students, faculty, and staff to support social, cultural, leadership, and recreational programs and events.
While you're having fun and meeting new friends, your involvement in student groups and activities will be an important addition to your resume. In addition, students who become involved in extracurricular activities often enjoy enhanced academic success as well.
No matter what your area of interest, you can always find something at Penn State Beaver that will add to your educational and learning experiences in and out of the classroom.
The Office of Student Activities is always open to new ideas, and we're interested in students' thoughts about events and activities. If you have ideas or questions, please contact Jennifer Toof, coordinator of student activities and residence life, 724-773-3947.
