In addition, our faculty and staff strive to create a supportive community in which our students grow and find their path to a meaningful life and productive career.

Students may participate in more than 100 student organizations, including special interest clubs, student media, student government, performing arts groups, service clubs, academic honors organizations, spiritual life groups, and Greek sororities and fraternities.  Club sports and over 20 intramural sports keep a competitive spirit alive.  The fine arts flourish on campus with a variety of theatre productions, art exhibits, and vocal and instrumental music concerts that offer creative outlets and training for students. The University participates in 24 intercollegiate sports and is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II, competing in the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC).
