Most offices of Student Affairs are located in the Callahan Center. The role of Student Affairs is to support the academic and personal development of each student.
A staff of professionals allows students one-on-one contact with administration to discuss any issue. Areas of special interest are often incorporated into campus-wide programming.
Student Affairs is an umbrella term to describe several offices that work closely with students and groups in the areas of residence life, student activities, counseling, community service, health, food service, spiritual life, and safety and security on campus.
Endicott students come from diverse social, cultural, and economic backgrounds, creating a diverse experience for all students. Students from across the United States and dozens of foreign countries are currently represented on campus. A celebration of these backgrounds allows students to truly experience a variety of cultures and traditions enriching their own personal experiences.
New Student Orientation
Endicott College provides two opportunities to assist newly admitted students and their families in their transition to higher education academics, campus life, and the Endicott community. The Endicott experience begins with Summer Orientation where new students and their families participate in an intensive, overnight orientation program. The summer orientation is designed to assist students in building relationships critical to success at Endicott College. Workshops and interactive sessions engage students and their families in academic and co-curricular activities, thus introducing new students to the academic and community expectations and standards of the College. Students also participate in placement testing and are introduced to a common reading designed to unite them in a shared intellectual discourse. Finally, orientation allows the College an opportunity to answer student and family questions and concerns before the academic year starts in order to ease the transition to Endicott.
Prior to the start of classes, Fall Orientation assists with the academic transition for life on campus. At Fall Orientation, students are prepared for the transition into academics at Endicott by meeting the faculty and staff of their respective Schools to enhance the students understanding of their programs. Students will also receive their class schedule during a session with their academic advisor where they may review their schedule and address any questions or concerns. Finally, the new class will participate in a traditional Convocation ceremony.
Academic and professional growth is only part of the development of students’ talents, interests, and abilities at Endicott. The Campus Activities Board (CAB) an active student activities committee with a mission to provide social, cultural, and educational programming utilizes students’ abilities in the development and implementation of specific programs. Opportunities exist for students to become part of planning and implementing or merely participating in major concerts, dances, movie programs, talent nights, bus trips, lectures, cultural events, and much more.
Endicott is committed to students and their views on matters concerning their educational and campus experiences. Active participation in the Endicott College Student Senate is strongly encouraged. Here a student can develop his or her leadership skills while working with other students to enhance the Endicott experience. Elected officers and senators representing each class serve as the coordinating and central planning body for students. The Standing Committees of the Student Senate deal with a variety of issues that are or may become concerns of students. Students may establish a new club or organization on campus, depending on student interest, through the Student Senate.
Endicott’s Leadership Program is a comprehensive model designed to meet the needs and interests of undergraduate students at various levels in their development. Any student can be a leader in some way or another, so a variety of avenues for skills building are offered. These include team building days, overnight retreats, speakers, and the Leadership Advisory Board.
The Endicott student identification card serves multiple purposes on campus. Not only does it provide access to residence halls and dining facilities, but also allows for a dollar value to be added to the card so that it becomes a cashless system for purchases on campus. Endicott’s dining facilities, bookstore, vending machines, laundry machines, copiers and printers are equipped to accept the Endicott Gull Card. The Gull Card is also accepted at various off-campus locations.
Dollar values can be added to the Gull Card at the Bursar’s Office with cash or check, or cash through value-ports in the Library, Callahan Center, and the Post Center.
