Buena Vista University believes that important learning experiences occur in the residence hall, on the playing field, and in university meeting rooms, as well as in the classroom and laboratory. Our co-curricular program provides opportunities for students to link theory to practice. Through these programs students develop leadership skills, explore career possibilities, provide service to others, participate in wellness activities, develop an understanding and appreciation of those from different backgrounds and cultures, and enjoy a variety of student activities. The co-curricular program complements the formal academic curriculum, emphasizing a holistic and well-rounded education. Additionally these experiences are important in career preparation, as future employers often look at students’ service and leadership involvement during college life.
