The Office of Student Activities serves as the clearinghouse for all campus-related student activities and is the primary source of support for all student organizations. The Office provides assistance in leadership skills training and support for student organizations, and is responsible for organizing new groups, planning programs and events and intramural sports to enhance student life. The Office is located in Warren Hall.
The Office of Student Activities provides a competitive Intramural Sports Program for students. More than ten activities are offered, featuring team and individual/dual competition. The goal of Intramural Sports is to be as diverse as possible and offer each student the opportunity to participate, regardless of ability.
Teams represent the faculty, staff, students, and all phases of the Tougaloo College community. Sports include basketball, volleyball, power lifting, softball, badminton, tennis, flag football, soccer, pool, bowling and table tennis. Participation is on a voluntary basis.
Preparing students for leadership is one of the principles that embodies the mission of Tougaloo College. The Office of Student Affairs provide opportunities for students to develop their leadership skills by ascending to positions of leadership. This program provides training for the emerging leaders as well as the established leader. It focuses on a wide range of critical areas over a 9-month period beginning with a 3-5 day leadership retreat.
Students may qualify to become members of the Student Government Association, Peer Educators, Tougaloo Ambassadors for Meritorious Scholars (T.A.M.S.), Resident Assistants, and the Yearbook Staff. Student leaders participate in an annual Leadership Retreat. Student Leaders are either elected or selected through an application/interview process. Students who apply must be a full-time student, have at least a cumulative grade point average of 2.80, have health records on file, and have good citizenship. Student leaders are expected to have a pleasant personality and be willing to dedicate a sufficient amount of time to developing programs to engage the campus community throughout the academic year.
