The Division of Student Affairs is responsible for that part of the student's total educational experience which takes place outside the formal classroom program. Among its concerns are housing, Student Center, student activities, recreation, student organizations, programs, disciplinary actions, disabled student services, community service, personal counseling, minority affairs and testing services. Through such activities as the Student Government Association, the students are given a responsible voice in the governance of the University. (See Student Handbook, The Lowdown.) Students also participate as members of University-wide committees as well as on committees within the colleges of the University.
The University of South Alabama, concerned with the total growth and development of its students, believes that attention should be given, not only to the intellectual aspect of this growth but also to the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual aspects. Through all of the services and programs of the University, students will hopefully acquire, along with a sound intellectual competence, a maturing sense of values.
The mission of the Student Center is to serve as a focal point of the campus where the University family- students, faculty, staff and alumni, as well as the extended community, can participate in informal association outside of the classroom. As the center of the University community it provides programs by students and for students which encourage the understanding and appreciation of cultural pluralism and ethnic diversity. It also provides opportunities for citizenship, social responsibility, and leadership development where students can enhance their educational development and enrich the University's environment.
Located in the building are lounge areas, a student art gallery, office space for student organizations, recreational facilities, dining services, and other service facilities. Six meeting rooms, a ballroom, and audio-visual equipment are available at no charge to student organizations, and administrative and academic departments. Individuals and outside organizations may reserve space and equipment for a small fee.
Reservations for any space in or around the UC may be made through Student Center Services Office, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. at (334)460-6077.
The Campus Recreation Program at the university is designed to offer a wide variety of recreational activities to the entire University community. Campus recreation accommodates many styles of participation, including team and individual competition in a variety of sports and other activities with purely fitness emphasis such as aerobics, weight training, etc. Persons or groups may use recreational facilities or equipment for social activities approved by the Campus Recreation Department. The continuing goal of the program is to provide recreational activities that offer optimum benefits of enjoyment, health, social interaction, and sportsmanship to participants.
The Student Recreation Center opened in 1992 with racquetball courts, basketball courts, an indoor running track, and a fitness center. This facility is free to students. The number of the Rec Center is (334)460-6065.
The University Counseling Services are staffed by professional counselors who are available to assist students with personal problems as well as with academic and vocational concerns. All types of adjustment and emotional problems are handled, including marriage and pre-marriage counseling, on a self-referral basis. Psychotherapy is provided by qualified counselors and referrals are made to various agencies as needs arise. The Counseling Service provides psychological testing and evaluation and coordinates other appropriate "campus survival" activities. No fees are charged for counseling, but, in some cases, a small fee is required for certain testing services. Counseling records are considered professional information and are protected accordingly. Personal confidences are strictly respected. Students may seek information or appointments either by telephoning 460-7051 or by visiting the Counseling Services, located in Alpha Hall East, Room 326.
The University has established a Center for Substance Abuse Education and Prevention. This office provides assessment, counseling, intervention, and referral services for University students and employees. There is no charge for information or on-campus counseling.

The University does not permit the possession, consumption, or distribution of alcohol by an individual on any of its campuses and in any of its facilities. Organizations may be permitted to have alcohol at events if permission is granted through the Office of Campus Involvement.

The Office of Minority Student Affairs, located in 260 Student Center, is committed to building a sense of community through special programs, mentoring relationships and encouraging membership in majority groups for minority students. This office is working to aid retention and to assist in leadership development for students.
PROGRAMS AND SPECIAL EVENTS
Student Programming or Jaguar Productions presents activities to serve the cultural, educational, recreational, and social interests of students. Those students who are directly involved have opportunities to exemplify creative thinking and leadership outside the classroom.
Student Programming functions through committees, such as Fine Arts, Horizons, Club South, Trips and Tours, Concerts, Movies, Special Events, Technical, and Promotions. Students select, publicize and produce the events. All students are invited to join these committees.
Students attending the University of South Alabama are accepted as responsible adults working with their faculty colleagues in search of knowledge. Rigid regulation of personal conduct will not be necessary since freedom as an objective of education is difficult without the actual existence of freedom.
Such freedom must be balanced by individual responsibility and respect for the rights,
responsibilities, and freedom of others. Students, therefore, will be held accountable for
their own decisions and actions. Failure to assume responsibility for actions that
jeopardize the rights and freedoms of others or involve the integrity of the University
will result in disciplinary review.
The University holds its students to high standards of academic excellence and similarly expects high standards of individual conduct. Persistent violations of expected standards or established regulations will necessarily involve appropriate disciplinary action. The University reserves the right to deny admission or continued attendance to students whose decisions and actions are contrary to the purposes and procedures of the University. The Lowdown, student handbook, contains the Code of Student Conduct.
STUDENT ACADEMIC CONDUCT
The Student Academic Conduct Policy is presented in the student handbook, The Lowdown. Please refer to that publication.
Over one hundred professional, departmental, special interest clubs, religious groups, and honor societies are active at the University. These organizations represent a wide variety of disciplines and interests and provide an opportunity for every student to get involved. Any student group seeking recognition is encouraged to pick up application forms in the Office of Campus Involvement, Room 129, Student Center, (334)460-7003.
The Office of Community Involvement (OCI) recruits volunteers (service-learners) for many non-profit community agencies. Applications may be obtained in Room 127, Student Center, (334)460-6668.
The University receives federal funding to provide support services to students who are first generation (i.e., parents did not graduate from college), income eligible, and/or are disabled. These services are free tutoring, study skills training, counseling, assistance in obtaining financial aid, information on further educational opportunities, and assistance in securing admissions and financial assistance for enrollment in graduate and professional programs. Students are also assigned to a faculty mentor. Students who wish to participate in this program should contact the Special Student Services Office, Room 270, Student Center, (334)460-7212.
Talent Search is a federally funded program sponsored by the University. This program identifies at-risk young people in middle schools and high schools with potential for postsecondary education and encourages them to continue and graduate from secondary schools and enroll in programs of postsecondary education. High school dropouts are also encouraged to return to school. Tutoring for the program participants is provided by USA students. For information contact the Educational Talent Search Office, UCOM 5700, (334)380-2620.
All motor vehicles used on the campus by students, faculty, or staff must be registered with the University Bursar's Office. At the time of vehicle registration, a set of traffic regulations is issued to each person together with a parking hang tag. Anyone driving a car to the campus without a current hang tag should obtain a temporary permit from University Police; visitors should obtain Visitor Permits.
University Testing Service serves as a regional testing center for national testing organizations. Testing is provided as requested by the various departments of the University. Most national entrance examinations are administered by the center.

Competing in both men's and women's sports on the intercollegiate level, the University's athletic program fulfills a vital role in giving the students a well-rounded environment of study and recreational entertainment. The University is an active member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Teams are maintained yearly in baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, tennis, track, and volleyball. Governed by regulations set forth by the President of the University, the Director of Athletics, the NCAA, and the Sun Belt Conference, athletic participation and expansion are enlarging as rapidly as facilities permit.
The mission of the Department of Athletics at the University of South Alabama is to complement and supplement the total educational program of the institution. The athletic department must provide learning experiences for all student-athletes and give each individual the opportunity to share in personal and group success. The University of South Alabama Department of Athletics provides student involvement in activities that help develop unity by encouraging a common quest for all students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the University. The athletic program is committed to enriching the mental and physical capabilities of its student-athletes while developing and building a respected program that is competitive on a national level in selected sports, at the same time operating a quality program in the other sports that will create a basis for pride among the varied constituencies of the University.

The editors and business managers for publications are selected from applications submitted by interested students.
The University and the community offer to students an opportunity to participate in a variety of cultural and recreational programs. Among them are concerts by symphonic and chamber organizations, choral groups and choirs, ballet and opera productions, theatre, art exhibits, film series, and lecture and discussion conferences.
