The Office of College Life


The Office of College Life [OCL] is responsible for promoting extracurricular and co-curricular programs that complement and enhance each student’s academic experience and personal development. The office believes that students not only have the opportunity to learn within the classroom but also, gain knowledge through life experiences and networking.

Specifically, this office works closely with athletics, recreation, and student clubs/ organizations, to provide the college with cultural, educational, and social programs. In addition, the Office serves as a planning resource for campus events and arranges leadership training for students.

Owl’s Space
Owl’s Space (OS) is a student engagement platform managed by College Life.  Members of the UCNJ community are encouraged to visit OS to learn about events happening on all UCNJ campuses. Events listed include those sponsored by College Life, student clubs and organizations as well as UCNJ departments.  Event categories include social, cultural, leadership, service and more.  On Owl’s Space students can confirm event attendance as well as learn how to get involved in clubs and organizations.
