Student and Campus Life at Union County College

Campus Recreation & Fitness

The office of College Life 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 the Student Government Association, 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 to students.
