Welcome to Student Life and Engagement

We're all about students. Period.

As an APSU student, a majority of your time is spent OUTSIDE of the classroom. Make it count by joining one of our student organizations or clubs, taking part in a service opportunity or attending a special program or event.

The SLE office is dedicated to serving students. We are conveniently located on the main level of the Morgan University Center. Visit us to answer any questions or help you get involved on campus....or just stop by to hang out!
