It is committed to provide an environment conducive to personal, social, emotional, spiritual and organizational development through involvement in student activities. It continues to plan, implement, evaluate and support programs and services to meet student needs.

- Extra-curricular activities are meant to supplement classroom instruction and co-curricular activities. All extra-curricular activities shall be subject to review and approval by the College Dean and the Dean of Student Affairs. Supervision of these activities is the responsibility of the faculty adviser.
