​​Our Philosop​hy

Involvement is the key to your success at Evergreen Valley College! The Office of Student Life seeks to create a nurturing campus environment by enhancing your co-curricular experiences, which will increase your likelihood to succeed. This office plays an integral role in student retention by offering students a place to meet new people, gain leadership skills, and have fun. The Office of Student Life serves as the hub of campus events and activities and strives to collaborate with other campus departments, programs and organizations to meet the various needs of our diverse student population. By visiting the Office of Student Life, you can learn how to join Associated Student Government or one of the many other student organizations that currently exist at EVC.

We encourage you to drop by the Office of Student Life located on the 2nd floor of the Gullo Student Center. Ask any Student Life staff member about how to get involved, take a campus tour, or just get campus information. Whether you wish to be a spectator, a participant, or a leader, we can assist you in your journey at EVC.

Student Activities

Student Activities is guided by the belief that college learning extends beyond the classroom. Leadership and co-curricular events and activities provide a “laboratory” for learning within a collaborative environment. Student activities augment classroom  instruction by fostering unique and expanded educational and cultural experiences. These experiences prepare students for future civic and social responsibilities through community service, learning, and leadership development experiences. They also foster personal growth and facilitate interaction between students, faculty, and administrators from varied backgrounds in diverse settings through organization of social and recreational activities.

​Understanding that the definition of student activities includes co-curricular as well as social and cultural activities, a wide range of diverse activities is encouraged and sponsored by the students, faculty, and administration. Many student activities are supported by the Associated Students in cooperation with various campus organizations. Programs are funded through the $5 per semester AS Activities/Membership fee.
