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!

January Student Leader of the Month 

Jake Slater


Jake is the most recent president of his fraternity. This past December, he discovered that one of the fraternity pledges was not going to have a Christmas because his family couldn't afford it. The student is at Austin Peay on scholarship and relies on that money to only attend school and take care of himself. Jake reached out to several members and alumni of the fraternity and raised hundres of dollars to purchase the student clothes and restaurant gift cards, making it the best Christmas the student has ever had. Additonally, Jake took him to a Tennessee Titans football game. The pride Jake possesses in telling the story of seeing his friend ride an escalator for the first time, or going into a mall for the first time is a form of leadership that often goes unnoticed. Austin Peay needs more people like Jake! 

February Student Leader of the Month

Ashley Hayes


As Vice President of the Govs Programming Council, Ashley Hayes has done a fantastic job with our new incentive point system, keeping track of 40+ members total points, and now filling in as the speakers/comedians chair. Ashley planned and executed one of GPC's most successful events (outside of Homecoming week) in our MTV2 Wild 'N Out comedy show. She was a great host for the four comedians on campus, managed a group of 10 volunteers the night of, and also managed the crowd during a meet and greet with the comedians after the show.  Ashley also traveled to the National Association of Campus Activities (NACA) conference in Minnesota in February to learn about national acts that APSU could potentially bring to campus. Ashley is extremely proactive, she always seems to be ahead of the game, friendly, and is confident in her work, making her a Student Leader of the Month.
