The Office of Student Engagement aims to positively transform the student experience by encouraging exploration, engagement, and leadership through programming and involvement opportunities. 


Coming to college may seem overwhelming at first, but we are here to help you make Hood your home.

The Student Engagement staff is committed to preparing students to become well-rounded and actively engaged graduates of Hood College. We offer a wide array of experiences within the following areas: Campus Programming, Leadership Development and Student Organizations.

The Office of Student Engagement is dedicated to providing opportunities to help facilitate the success and development of our students. Our goal is to help enhance the involvement of our students by providing programming that encourages a fun and inclusive environment. We value our students and the experience they have while attending Hood College.
