Campus Events

These programs may be coordinated in collaboration with various student organizations, administrative offices and/or academic departments. Various theme weeks and months throughout the semester will contain programs that celebrate and educate about relevant social issues that exist both in the Purchase community and in society as a whole. Additionally, several stand alone annual programs whose focus is on either community development or education take place. All programs are developed and facilitated by student leaders with Office of Student Life professional staff serving in an advisory capacity.
