A Message from the Vice President


VP Student Life
and Development
Wanda Overland

Welcome! The staff in Student Life and Development works with students and assists them in gaining the most from their collegiate experience. This website offers information about the many departments, programs and services provided by Student Life and Development.

Because learning is a campus-wide experience, we are committed to providing positive, enriched environments so students can succeed inside and outside of the classroom. By becoming fully engaged in both academic studies and campus life, they gain a greater understanding of themselves, their beliefs and passions and how they can make a difference in the world.

The staff, programs, services and facilities are available to assist in learning and taking advantage of all that SCSU has to offer.
