Student Life

College is more than classroom lectures, homework and exams.  An SVC education is a total learning experience, providing the student with opportunities to develop leadership skills, build lifelong friendships, enhance personal and professional skills, and prepare for a fulfilling and successful life.  The Dean of Students oversees the following areas of student life: Counseling, Dining Services, Health Services, Residence Life, and Campus Safety.  The staff members in the Student Life department are available to assist students throughout their academic careers at Southern Vermont College.

Southern Vermont College offers a variety of co-curricular programs that compliment and support the academic program.  Visit Campus Life at SVC to learn more about these opportunities to become involved.
