Episode 44: A Quick Guide to Student Life

June 13, 2022

What do you like to do in your free time?

If you're the adventurous type, maybe it's exploring the outdoors or trying a new sport. Or catching a concert or theatre performance if you're into the arts. Or maybe you love working with others to better your community.

Whatever your extracurricular interests and passions are, college is the ultimate time to dive even deeper into the things that you love. At most colleges, you'll find a whole administrative division dedicated to enhancing the experiences of students outside of the classroom.

In this episode, we're discussing the role of a student life office on campus, how high schoolers can get a sense of what student life looks like at a school, and advice for exploring both new and familiar interests in college.

Our guest is Brent Papson, Bucknell's director of campus activities & programs.
