1. Student Support Services -Student Leadership Council
2. Office of Multicultural Student Services
3. Residence Life - Drake Hall Front Desk Assistant and Eagle Guide for New Student Orientation
4. Murphy Learning Center - Front Desk Assistant and Web Editor
5. LeaderShape National Institute.
These are all things I have and still currently participating in.

I love how easy it is to get involved with different clubs and organizations on campus. I also appreciate how nice and willing-to-help the professors are here. I am definitely pushed here academically, so I like how I am not only learning new things, but being challenged to do even better than I have before here through the rigorous coursework. The campus is also under construction in some areas, so it's nice to see how they are constantly making our campus a better place!
The town is really nice, with a decent amount of activities to do. There's especially a lot of outdoor activities and beautiful sights to see! The campus itself isn't too large, so walking to class doesn't usually take too long. The library is a really good place to study with a decent coffee shop in it, and the new student union has a lot of comfy chairs. Soon there will be a new science building, with a lot of labs! The math and statistics professors are also really interesting and helpful! It's a very good campus to be at!
