Office of Student Affairs
The purpose of the Division of Student Affairs is to offer programs to complement the academic programs of study at Fort Valley State University and to enhance students’ overall educational experiences through social, cultural, intellectual, and recreational interactions.
Participation in co-curricular activities serves to develop students’ special talents, deepen their appreciation for fellowship and cooperation, and enlarge their individual capacities for leadership. There are more than 70 co-curricular organizations, departmental clubs, guilds, fraternities, sororities, honor societies, drama and music groups that are open to all students or students who are majoring in a specific discipline. Of the total co-curricular opportunities available, five are national honor societies, 30 are departmental clubs, and 35 have general, cultural, civic, or political focus. An organized program of intramural sports between classes and student organizations is conducted as an integral part of the program of health and physical education. These organizations afford students the opportunities to develop teamwork ability and leadership as well as other social skills.
Delivery of programs and services is guided by an ongoing assessment of student needs, the campus climate, and established outcomes. The mission is carried out through teaching and personal instruction, advisement, counseling, community service projects and organized programs and services. For more details concerning these or other organizations visit Campus Life located on the upper level of the Lyons Student Center.
