Office of Student Activities

The Office of Student Activities helps student, clubs, faculty, and staff plan and run activities at Washington College.

As part of the residential campus experience, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to learn, to practice your leadership skills, and to bring the element of fun.

The Office of Student Activities works to fulfill its commitment to student learning, personal development, and the enhancement of campus life by expanding the student educational and social experience through diverse and challenging opportunities that promote and facilitate participation in the intellectual, cultural, and social aspects of Washington College. Student Activities through its programs and activities helps to shape the out of class experience into a living-learning laboratory that provides students an opportunity to develop personal, professional, and leadership skills.
