Welcome to Opportunity!

The Student Development Office is committed to the philosophy that students who participate in the life of a college excel academically, personally, and professionally. Students who participate in co-curricular activities and build relationships with faculty, staff, and peers are most likely to stay in school and persist to graduation.

The Student Development Office exists to support the leadership and personal development of our students through Campus Life Activities, Associated Student Government (ASG) and Student Clubs.
