Student Life

There is more to a good education than just hitting the books. The Student Life Department helps fill your cup and make your academic experience even more rewarding.

SKC Student Activities Department works to promote a rich, diverse, and intellectually stimulating college experience for every student. Working with other organizations, the office helps to create campus opportunities that expose students to new ideas and experiences. In addition, the office tries to infuse the campus with a sense of community and family. The student union building is open for studying, socializing, and other student events; also it is the center for many social events and gatherings on campus.

This office also works with the SKC Student Senate in coordinating campus activities that reflect the needs, hopes and desires of the general student population. Activities include campus speakers, poetry readings, talent shows, theater visits, film presentations, Family Night Programs, holiday theme evenings and community-wide dinners. Annual events include the Harvest Dinner, Spring Fling, Culture Night, Games Day, and the Student Awards Program. The office also sets up recreational events such as hiking, camping, skiing, softball, and rafting. Through this office, the SKC Intramural Program operates with both basketball and volleyball.
