​​​​Campus ​Life


Be part of it all!

mud volleyball Your involvement in activities that take place outside of the classroom has a profound impact on your college experience. We encourage you to make new friends, gain leadership experience, get caught up with an afternoon game of mud volleyball and broaden your horizons by being involved with many of our 80+ student organizations.

Living on campus

Living on Campus is about so much more than just a place to sleep and keep your stuff. With 1,350 students living on campus, you will be part of a fun campus environment and make memories that will last long after you walk back through the Arch at graduation. 

As a freshman, you will get to know other new students by living in one of the University’s eight residence halls. Spacious townhouses, apartment-style cottages and special interest houses are available for upperclassmen. All housing areas are fully furnished, and offer the use of free washers and dryers, cable television and high-speed Internet access. 

Student Activities

Since we are a small campus that offers a wide variety of activities and organizations, you can be involved in as many things as you want. You can sing in the Concert-Chorale, join a social fraternity, host a show on WLFC or earn bragging rights as the intramural water polo champion. You also can enjoy concerts, comedians and entertainers that perform on campus.

Where to Eat
