Student Life Office

The Student Life Office is the center of student activity on campus. To make the most of your college experience, the Student Life Office offers over 50 active clubs and organizations for students to participate in. We also have several clubs that are looking for new student leadership.  Getting involved outside of the classroom helps students to develop communication, management and leadership skills.

We offer a wide variety of student activities to suit the diverse needs, interests and backgrounds of our students, as well as student discounts on movie tickets and more!

Check the What’s Happening page for a listing of events, discounts and activities available to our students!

Also, check out our new Club Events page for a list of upcoming club-sponsored events!

Student Life Leadership and Development Program

Each year, the Student Life Office coordinates a Student Leadership and Development Program.  This multi-day program gives students the opportunity to learn to manage their weakness and capitalize on their strengths, cultivate working relationships with others, and examine skills such as decision making and problem-solving.  The retreat takes place in January during winter break.  Information on next year’s retreat will be available in September.

Student Life Office Goals

Our goal is to help students assume responsibility for their own behavior, develop their own skills through experiences, and become aware of their own strengths.

Poster and Flyer Guidelines:  Ocean County College has developed a set of guidelines to govern the hanging of posters and flyers around campus.  Please read this document for more details.
