Student Life

Academic pursuits, while a student’s primary consideration, do not dominate life at Findlay, and they are not separate from life outside the classroom. Activities on campus, part-time jobs, friends, and conversations with faculty members are as much a part of the college experience as assignments, classes, and examinations.

The University experience is a vital learning and developmental process for the student. Therefore, the mission of Student Affairs is:

  • To provide support functions focused on identifying and meeting student needs.
  • To foster active learning opportunities that will enhance the academic experience, create a sense of civic responsibility, and promote intellectual, physical, cultural, ethical, moral, spiritual, and social growth.
  • To encourage and support diversity.
  • To challenge students to explore their identities, persist in their academic programs, make a commitment to lifelong growth, and actively participate in the local and global community.

The University maintains policies that are needed to ensure safety, encourage responsible behavior, foster mutual respect, and support the mission of the University.

The University is committed to providing students with opportunities for personal growth. To that end, faculty and staff work closely with students to help them pursue their goals through experiential learning, research, service, and co-curricular activities.
