Please explore the many different offices that make up the Office of Student Affairs and see what they can offer for you.

Student Life


Endicott students come from diverse social, cultural, and economic backgrounds, creating a diverse experience for all students. our students come from across the United States and dozens of foreign countries. 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 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 Endicott’s standards and expectations for academic progress and community involvement. 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 allows students to participate in numerous activities that will help them take active roles in their education and to get involved in their new community.  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.
