College students share similar goals of meeting new people and finding ways to get involved. The Center for Student Life & First-Year Programs supports these goals by offering fun, entertaining, educational, and innovative programs and activities.

It features booths by HPU’s Registered Student Organizations (clubs and organizations) at the beginning of each semester.
