Students

The Office for Student Affairs (OSA) expects students at the University of Minnesota to participate in experiences both inside and outside of the classroom which allow them to develop and demonstrate skills and characteristics for success and citizenship during their college years and beyond. Students who engage in opportunities outside of the classroom not only develop these skills, but perform better in the classroom, feel a stronger sense of campus community, and are more likely to graduate in a timely manner.
