Introduction to Student Engagement

The Department of Student Engagement seeks to develop the Georgia Highlands College student body through a series of co-curricular activities that promote experiential learning, wellness, an appreciation of the arts, leadership and volunteerism. The DSE encourages and provides student involvement opportunities to complement the academic programs of study and to enhance the overall college experience for all GHC students.

The Department of Student Engagement coordinates and schedules a wide variety of student activities programs and events of a cultural, entertainment and recreational nature throughout the year. Cultural events often include programs or special exhibits on literature, music and the arts. The Department brings nationally known entertainers, artists, and guest lecturers to campus to discuss a variety of topics that are both entertaining and enriching. Entertainment events include professional musicians, novelty attractions, games, comedians, and special annual events such as Week of Welcome, Fall Frenzy and Spring Fling.

All programs, events and functions coordinated by the Department of Student Engagement at all GHC locations are funded by the student activity fee that all GHC students pay each semester. For this reason, most programs and events available during the course of the semester are FREE for all students to attend and/or participate in.
