Student Life at Thomas College is dedicated to the education and development of the diverse student body and to creating a meaningful, learning centered campus life for students at the College. Student Life works in active partnership with student, faculty, and staff colleagues to foster and support student opportunities for learning, involvement, leadership, community building, and creative expression that compliment classroom experiences. Student Life further supports student organizations and their leaders, and they in turn provide programs and resources to the student body and the wider college community.
The Student Orientation and Orientation Leader program is designed to enrich student life, assist with the transition to Thomas College, prepare students for academic excellence, provide campus entertainment and prepare students to be leaders in their communities. The program includes Orientation Leader selection and training, Orientation weekend planning and events, and coordination of Welcome Week.
The Office of Student Life also provides students with numerous ways to get involved on campus. An average of 20 active student organizations are registered every year. In addition, there are other activities and opportunities for involvement which enhance your college career, build your leadership skills, and provide avenues to make lots of new friends by joining or supporting one of our many student groups. The types of groups to select from include academic, service, recreation, religious, honorary, environmental, and social. Students can learn more about activities and involvement opportunities during the fall Terrier Fair (club and organization fair).
