Our goal in Student Development is to ensure that there is always something to do on, or around, our campus.
Students bowling during Student Development event

Below you’ll find a list of events that we’ve planned for you, at little to no cost. Take in a movie, enjoy a night out bowling with friends, or join us on one of our many day trips. If there is something that you would like to do but don’t see here, stop by and let us know about it – we always love getting feedback from students!

And, if you want to try something a little outside the box, check out our Adventure Series!



(Sign up at Henry Student Center Info Desk.)
