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!

November Student Leader of the Month: Niya Sparks!


"Niya serves as an internship but is also one of Undergraduate Assistants (which is the highest student level position we offer). She was hired in the summer and after showing a great work ethic and great interest in learning she was promoted. Niya is a member of the APSU softball team and works 40+ hours a week with us while maintaining her athletic responsibilities and academic responsibilities. She is one that leads by example, she isn't very vocal but our students see her and her efforts and they can't help but to try and work up to her satisfaction. She is by far the friendliest person on staff and our patrons recognize her and compliment us on her regularly. She believes in taking care of our patrons first and doing what she can to ensure that they are satisfied. She loves constructive criticism and handles it perfectly. She makes connections with every student on staff and builds rapport with all of our patrons through her interactions. If all of our staff at UREC was exactly like her then we'd be able to rest easy! Niya applied for our first ever University Recreation Scholarship and was awarded with the most amount of money. She is eager to become a better UREC employee and is trying to obtain as much knowledge as she can before graduating in May so she will use her scholarship to attend some NIRSA conferences with us! She has great potential and has been the greatest asset thus far to our team here." **Nominated by Anja Shelton
