About the Office of Campus Activities & Orientation
Classroom education is a priority in your college career, but the learning experience should not stop there. Eighty percent of learning takes place outside the classroom. Focused on expanding the student's collegiate experience with opportunities to participate in fun and learning situations, the Office of Campus Activities & Orientation provides programs in the following areas.
Activities offers participation and membership into the National Society ofLeadership Success (NSLS). This is a leadership training program that
teaches students how to achieve success by participating in goal setting
exercises, attending speaker broadcast presentations and learning from other
great leaders, and working collaboratively with each other to make a better world.
Once inducted, students can choose to participate in Viterbo’s membership
chapter were they use their leadership skills to participate in service
projects and continue building their leadership skills.
following are leadership positions offered in Campus Activities.
Friday and Saturday night at 9 p.m. a different social program is held on
campus, free of charge for students. Programs may be hypnotists, live
music, games, competitions, crafts, bingo, casino night, movies, and more.
All ages of students are invited to attend the programs. Some
programs are held at off-campus locations.
University's student organizations serve as an added educational resource to
students, giving them experiences related to their classes and providing a
variety of activities to supplement and balance their lives. Involvement
in a group that helps to explore interests can be a source of developing
skills, learning more about the many facets of a particular area, experiencing
the interplay of working with others, and assuming leadership roles. Get
involved in one of the 30 plus student organizations. All organizations
act independently and are student-run, but are managed by Campus
Activities. All organizations require university status to be able to
apply for funding from the Student Government Association (SGA).
Activities Board (SAB) plans social programs for students such as Homecoming,
semester bus trips, free movie nights, WithOut Worries Week (Wow Week), and
Courtyard Carni. The
SAB advisor is the director of campus
activities and orientation.
All new students go through orientation in some form before they start school at Viterbo. Once you are a current student, you can be an Orientation Leader for the V-Hawk Orientation Days program and earn service learning hours.
Opportunities for work study in Campus Activities, volunteering with VU After Dark, becoming an Orientation Leader, or to become a VU After Dark programming assistant, contact campus activities.
