At ULM, we are not only concerned about the intellectual development of our students, but the physical and cultural development as well. The formal academic training received at ULM can be supplemented by extracurricular activities of groups or individuals with common interests. Such groups can make major contributions to the development of the well-rounded individual. The five major focus areas for Student Life include Leadership Development, Student Organization Support, Student Governance & Programming, Greek Life and Spirit Groups.
- Leadership Development - ULM’s Leadership Workshop Series provides speakers, interactive sessions, focus groups, and other activities throughout the semester, –helping students develop a strong foundation of leadership beyond the classroom setting. Students participating in the Leadership Workshop Series have opportunities to discuss important social, personal, multi-cultural, and other current issues affecting our campus and today’s world.
- Student Organization Support - This area oversees the student organization approval and maintenance process, as well as, training and services for all registered student organizations and University advisors.
- Student Governance & Programming - Consists of the executive, judicial, and legislative branches of the ULM Student Government Association. The programmatic initiatives of Student Life include advising the Campus Activities Board (CAB), and other campus-wide student programming.
- Greek Life - Oversees the advising of the three Greek governing councils, Interfraternity Council, National Panhellenic Council, and the National Pan-Hellenic Councit, at ULM. Traditionally, Greek organizations at ULM are strong contributors to the improvement of the university and the community. Founded on principles of scholarship, leadership, community service, and development of lifelong friendships, Greek organizations today still practice these fundamental principles in their pursuit of excellence.
- Spirit Groups - ULM’s Spirit groups include the ULM Cheer Team, HawkLine, Scouts, and Ace the Warhawk.
