Student Activities and Leadership staff are dedicated to help students find community and foster passions while developing leadership and life skills.
For most needs it is best to start with SAL Peer Advisors, who are experienced student leaders and excel with financial, banking and event-planning advice.
Peer advisors are available on a drop-in and scheduled basis about 40 hours each week, including Thursdays 7–9 pm.
