While academic achievement leading to graduation is the reason for attending Arkansas Tech University, the experiences that students have outside the classroom prove to have a lifelong impact. Experiences offered through Campus Life enhance maturity, leadership, time management, friendship, career development, civic engagement along with many other essential life skills.
Specifically Campus Life consists of the following offices; Campus Recreation, Greek Life, Student Activities & Orientation and Student Life.
The mission of Campus Recreations is to provide participation in a variety of sport, fitness and recreational events that help stimulate student learning and personal development while enhancing the quality of life for Arkansas Tech University students. Campus Recreation achieves this mission by providing opportunities for a diversified population to recreate, exercise and socialize through a variety of programs within Intramural Sports, Fitness, Outdoor Recreation and various Special Events.
Through an emphasis on academic excellence, active participation in community service and philanthropic activities, ongoing leadership development and positive interaction between all fraternities and sororities, the Office of Greek Life helps promote fraternities and sororities as an integral and productive part of the University community. The Office of Greek Life is responsible for advising the governing councils (IFC, CPC, and NPHC) for the registered social Greek organizations and Greek auxiliary groups such as Order of Omega Leadership Honor Society and Greek Programming Board.
Fully engaging students in their college experience requires not only quality academic experiences; it also requires a diverse offering activities and programs that meet the social and personal needs of students. Student Activities meet these needs by providing various events throughout the year that have included comedians, movies, carnivals, dances, concerts, speakers and numerous other programs.
Our Orientation program is designed to provide an experience that helps incoming students to gain a full understanding of the campus culture. Offered to incoming new students in the summer before their first fall semester and in the spring prior to the start of the semester, New Student Orientation gets Arkansas Tech students starting off in the right direction.
The Office of Student Life creates and fosters initiatives for Arkansas Tech students to enrich their co-curricular experiences through leadership development, civic engagement and involvement opportunities. Students will enhance their personal, interpersonal, and organizational development through involvement in Student Life initiatives and programs. Areas include; Registered Student Organizations, L:EAD Academy, Spirit Squads, Alternative Spring Break, Community Service & Civic Engagement and various other campus events.
