Student Services are a combination of both services to assist students and student development. The Student Services Office plans events and provides programs that offer students physical, cultural, spiritual, and social development. It also provides services and programs that allow students to practice within a healthy college environment. Student services and student development, when properly designed to correspond with SJC’s mission, reinforce and extend the College’s influence beyond the classroom.
Student activities have great potential in meeting the fundamental aspirations of students of becoming informed and formed through student life programs outside the classroom, playing an essential role in augmenting the value of a student's education because they are considered an extension of the classroom, with emphasis on the formulation of complementary goals that support the academic mission of the College.
