While some students engage in academic service-learning, which combines meaningful community service opportunities with selected courses, others participate in Alternative Breaks, Greek philanthropies, service-oriented clubs and groups, and community service work-study opportunities. Each term, the college offers academic service-learning courses that will allow you to apply your classroom to a real-life situation in the community. By applying your new knowledge through service with others, you will learn the material more quickly while reflecting on the service, and it will stay with you longer. Moreover, it is more fun.

Leadership is essential to your college experience. On the athletic field, in your fraternity or sorority house, in the classroom, or while on spring break—there is always an opportunity for you to take the lead. Leadership opportunities also exist in academic programs like Model UN, PRISM, Posey Global Leadership, the Integrated Health Studies Institute, Entrepreneurs in Action, and the Public Affairs Institute.

There is a student organization for just about every passion you may have. Greeks, geeks, and everything in between—with nearly 100 student organizations, your school spirit will shine in whatever you choose to do.No matter which Student Life activities you choose to get involved with, each one will help you explore new ideas and interests. From your first day on campus, you will find Alma is a friendly, welcoming place. You will quickly make friends through your classes and your extracurricular activities. However, your closest friends may become the people you live within Alma’s residence halls or other housing options.
