STUDENT AFFAIRS MISSION STATEMENT
Student Affairs staff members are focused on fostering learning environments that engage our students and empower them to develop strong leadership skills, inside and outside of the classroom. We are committed to providing well balanced programs and to supporting opportunities for the personal, social, recreational, spiritual, cultural and civic development of our students, to become actively engaged within the campus community and beyond. We value and care for our students and their rights, and embrace diversity by cultivating inclusiveness and enthusiastically engage them in ways to inspire and mentor them.
The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) holds the key to enhancing your college experience. It is the one-stop center for activity on campus. We host many campus-wide events and activities adding to the student benefit of enrolling at Palomar College. We want your experience at Palomar to be full of support both inside and outside the classroom.
The OSA oversees the two Student Union (SU) buildings, where you will find the Student Computer Lab (SU-28), the Success, Equity, Advocacy, Leadership (SEAL) Center rooms (SU-19), the Diversity Center (SU-204), the Student Activities Office (SU-202) and the offices of the Associated Student Government (SU-102 & 104). Leadership training and workshops are offered throughout the year, enabling students to become outstanding leaders.
ACTIVITY CARD – We offer students an Activity Card that comes with many FREE benefits. The card costs $15.00 and can be purchased on your e-services account online or at the Cashier’s Office. Then swing by SU-201 or SU-202 to get your photo taken and receive your card. This card even allows you access to print up to 10 pages a day for free in the Student Computer Lab, get free scantrons and bluebooks, discounted movie theater tickets and more!
GET INVOLVED! As students, you have the opportunity to step forward and become active in a club/organization. These opportunities help you connect more closely with Palomar College, build your leadership skills, help develop your budgeting skills, enhance management abilities, and allow you to participate in campus-wide decisions. Even more than that, you will have the opportunity to foster friendships in a diverse environment.
HAVE A CONCERN? The Office of Student Affairs manages most student complaints, grievances, and disciplinary actions. If you have a problem on campus, other than a grade dispute, stop by the OSA for information about to work towards a solution. We are here to help you have the best experience you can!
Check out the “What Can I Do If…” page on the left hand side of this page located under ‘Student Information’ for quick insights to some common questions asked by students. For more information, you may stop by the OSA any time we are open.
