Student Involvement

About Student Involvement

As Nichols students learn and train for their careers, they also thrive in a tight-knit community. Whether they live on campus or off, our students enjoy activities that express who they are and what they love to do.

Campus life is a key part of how our students grow into confident leaders. It’s also all kinds of fun.

The Nichols College Student Involvement Office works to maximize the personal growth and development of our students by facilitating a variety of opportunities for Involvement, Service and leadership through co-curricular activities. Activities in organizations, Student Government, Campus Recreation, service learning and a varied event calendar, creates a vibrant and purposeful college community where you can make a difference and develop meaningful relationships with others, learn about yourself and develop life skills. Service to the college community through student activities is personally rewarding and provides opportunities to promote change on campus and explore new interests.
