Student life

The University provides comprehensive academic and student support programs. Many are self-contained; others offer not only a full range of local services but also access to regional, national, or even international resources through information databases, networks, and/or professional associations. The University's International Student & Scholar Center (ISSC) offers ongoing support with visas and other immigration-related documentation that students require while studying at the University. ISSC staff also provide general advice and assistance with campus life and personal needs. Workshops pertaining to employment, taxes and other subjects of particular interest to international students are held during the academic year. Cultural events are co-sponsored by the ISSC and other campus organizations. There are hiking trails, bike trails, restaurants, museums, mall, cinema all within minutes of the university. Activities like ski trips, bowling nights, treetop adventures, game nights, skydiving and rock climbing are hosted by various clubs and organizations. We also have a recreational lounge that offers facilities like Xbox, PlayStation, Wii, 8-Ball tables, table tennis, air hockey and board games. All the academic buildings provide the students with lounges and halls where they can study, group up with friends/classmates for projects, and spend time between their classes.
