Our main goal in the Office of Student Activities is to provide extra-curricular activities to Belmont Abbey College students. The activities program is designed to complement the academic program of studies and enhance the overall educational experience of students through the development of, exposure to, and participation in social, cultural, intellectual and recreational activities– and we have lots of fun in the process! The college experience is about so much more than just going to class. What you do in between all that is required can mean the difference between an average college experience and a GREAT college experience.
