The Office of Student Life coexists as an integral part of the education process at Bowie State University. Our primary focus is to provide high quality programs and activities that compliment the in-class experiences of all students. It is our belief that these programs must be intentional in an effort to connect the students to the University as well as foster student involvement and retention. We are grounded in student development theory and use this as a basis to assist students in achieving their educational goals. We are committed to providing students with opportunities to learn in non-traditional ways that aid in their social, physical, intellectual, career, educational, and spiritual growth and development, while supporting the traditional education that is learned in the classroom.
