Beyond the Classroom
The college experience includes more than academics. Many Winona State students participate in clubs and organizations, intramural sports, intercollegiate athletics, the arts, and community service. These activities are a great way to build a social life and gain skills such as leadership, teamwork, and responsibility – skills that help prospective employers and graduate admissions committees get a better idea of who you are and what you can do.
Living on campus is exciting, convenient, and affordable. WSU Housing and Residence Life offers resources and experiences that complement students’ academic work. Research shows that the more than 2,500 students who live on campus are more satisfied with their college experience.
More than 200 clubs and organizations, plus leadership programs, intramural and recreational sports, cultural events, and more are waiting for you! Getting involved in a variety of activities helps you create the true Winona State experience.
Athletics may be one reason you’ve heard of Winona State. But championship teams are just one part of being a Warrior. Games are a big event with students, faculty, staff, and the community turning out to cheer the Warriors.
More than half of WSU participate in community service. The culture of engagement enhances our community and makes an impact on the world. Many of our travel-study programs involve service learning across the globe. And the National Child Protection Training Center, located on the Winona State campus, is working to end child maltreatment forever.
Winona State is committed to cultural diversity and understanding on campus, and to prepare all members of our community for successful living in a global society. The Office of Inclusion & Diversity offers a variety of programs and initiatives for students, faculty, staff, and the community.
The Office of Student Life and Development advances student learning and supports and enhances the educational mission of Winona State University. With an emphasis on holistic student development, faculty and staff within Student Life and Development (SLD) strive to assist students in achieving their potential and in becoming self-directed in all activities.
