Student Affairs

Click on a link to be taken to the entry below.


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.


Student Life


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 opportunties to assist newly admitted students and their families in the 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 their 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 are also introduced to their summer reading assignment which is 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 students with the academic transition for life on campus. During Fall Orientation, students meet with faculty and staff, enhancing their understanding of their respective Schools and programs. Students will also have the opportunity to review their schedules and address any questions or concerns they might have before the first day of classes.  Students will be introduced to their EC101 - Endicott Transitions course, which addresses the challenges of incoming students and provides strategies for success in an academic community. Fall Orientation concludes with the participation in a traditional Convocation ceremony.

Student Activities


Academic and professional growth is only part of the development of students’ talents, interests, and abilities at Endicott. The Campus Activities Board (CAB) is an active student activities committee with a mission to provide social, cultural, and educational programming. CAB utilizes students’ abilities in the development and implementation of specific programs. Opportunities exist for students to become part of planning, implementing, and participating in major concerts, dances, movie programs, talent nights, bus trips, lectures, cultural events, and much more.

Student Government


Endicott is committed to students and their views on matters concerning their educational and campus experiences.  Active participation in the Endicott College Student Government 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 representing each class serve as the coordinating and central planning body for students.  Student Government deals 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 Government.

Leadership Programs


Endicott’s comprehensive leadership programs are  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 Resident Assistants, REACH, LIGHThouse Leadership Society, and Student Government, along with many other opportunities.

Endicott Gull Card System


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. Dollar values added with a credit card must be done online at www.endicott.edu/e-bill. The Gull Card Office is located in College Hall.

Confidential counseling is available to all currently enrolled Endicott students at no charge.
