Graduate Assistantships in Campus Life


About Campus Life

Campus Life at Arkansas Tech University is seeking high-energy, student-focused individuals interested in making a positive impact in the lives of our students. 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.

All our initiatives are designed to help students better understand themselves and the role they play in their sphere of influence. In doing so, we are producing graduates who are better prepared to impact the career and community of their choice. Not only will they have the academic abilities, but through these experiences they have a full understanding of themselves and understand what it takes to be more than just an average college graduate.

Campus Life encompasses the following areas; Campus Recreation, Co-Curricular Experience (Campus Life), Facilities, Greek Life, Leadership Programs, New Student Orientation, Outdoor Recreation, Registered Student Organizations, Service Initiatives, Spirit Squads, and Student Activities.
