The CC student affairs staff works throughout the year involving students in campus activities. In October, they focus on preparing students for careers in student affairs.

The focus gives students an opportunity to learn about the different offices that support students outside of their classrooms.

Being involved in student affairs is about getting involved in clubs and organizations and getting involved in events on campus, Mikayla Woodward, graduate assistant for student affairs, said.

There are five offices on campus that support students outside of the classroom:

-The dean of students office

-Counseling services

-Student activities

-Residence life and housing

-Multicultural affairs

-Community resources

During student affairs month, the staff holds meetings to help students get started with a student affairs career.

“We have an interactive event that we do every Monday in the dining room during lunch called ‘Eat and Greet.’ It’s definitely open to any student who is [willing] to sit down with us during lunch on Mondays and talk about the field,” Woodward said.

 

LaNae’ Budden, dean of students, is involved in student affairs month as she works alongside Woodward.

“What I enjoy most is the fact that we help students to understand early on that there’s a profession that exists,” Budden said.

Students can learn more about a career in student affairs by talking to either Budden or Woodward.
