Student Center and Activities

To provide a rich student experience, Student Center and Activities creates abundant opportunities for student involvement and engagement.

Student Center and Activities (SCA) contributes to our vibrant campus life by igniting and encouraging opportunities for student engagement; empowering students to create and connect to the St. Kate’s community.

Together with our programming, advising, and services, SCA facilitates students in their recognition and development of their leadership capacity, social and civic responsibility, and personal evolution.

We aim to create a community for our campus by providing relevant and key resources that enhance the student experience while ensuring that students are always at the heart of the Coeur de Catherine.

Events and Activities

We provide a wide array of opportunities and events for students to get involved throughout the year.

The annual fair held each fall is a great opportunity to learn more about chartered clubs and organizations, leadership opportunities, upcoming events, and campus activities. Save the date for the 2018 Activities Fair on Thursday, September 20.

A semi-formal social event held each December to raise money for Sarah’s…an Oasis for Women. Sarah's, a ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph, provides a welcoming space for women looking for housing, community and safety on a temporary basis.

The annual end-of-the-year celebration for the St. Kate's community is held on the last day of classes in May. The Dew Drop Bop encompasses a carnival-type feel with wonderful food, music, entertainment, and fantastic prizes.

Each spring, St. Catherine University hosts the Honors and Awards Ceremony to honor student achievement in academics and leadership. The event begins with a reception that includes displays highlighting student award winners' accomplishments. This is followed by a formal program, which allows individual departments and the University as a whole to present awards recognizing student achievement.

Among the many honors bestowed at the ceremony, the University recognizes students through the All-University Student Leadership Awards. These awards recognize students' contributions to co-curricular and academic life at St. Kate's, their growth in leadership roles, and their involvement in campus life.

Clubs and Organizations

The Student Center and Activities Office encourages participation in clubs and organizations as an excellent way to experience personal growth, meet new friends, share common interests with other students, and have some fun outside of the classroom.

With more than sixty clubs and organizations chartered at St. Kate's, you’re sure to find a group that’s right for you.

The Student Center and Activities office helps with clubs and organization information, chartering, publicity, and financial requests.
