                                    and Athletics

                The University of New Orleans recognizes the important role that involvement in student life activities pro-
                vides for students. By becoming active on campus, whether by joining a student organization or supporting
                UNO athletics, (or both!) you have nothing to lose and some great things to gain. You'll form new and last-
                ing friendships that will offer you both social and academic support; you'll develop a sense of school spirit
                and belonging to the UNO community; and the important skills and experiences gained by participating in
                campus activities will make you more marketable to employees after graduation.

                The Division of Student Affairs sponsors and promotes activities that compliment the educational experience.
                You may choose to get involved in a wide range of activities and programs such as the Student Activities
                Council, Student Government, International Students and Scholars, Greek Life, and any one of more than 100
                student organizations. The Division of Student Affairs also administers Student Health Services and
                Counseling Services, which provide quality medical and psychological care to UNO students. Students with
                children can take advantage of UNO's Children's Center, which provides quality, on-campus child care for a
                nominal fee.
