Office of Student Life & Engagement

Besides events and programs hosted by the Residence Life staff, DHRL often collaborates with the Office of Student Life and Engagement or helps to promote their calendar of events. The Office of Student Life and Engagement has several opportunities for students to get involved on campus outside of the residence halls. Make sure to check out their upcoming events if you are looking for something to do around campus!
