Student Life works to provide the necessary co-curricular instruction and experience to ensure that each student receives a three dimensional education and is grounded in healthy and viable leadership principles and practices.
USFSM is a community of learners where students can develop skills and acquire the knowledge necessary to be responsible, engaged leaders and global citizens. The mission of Student Life is to enhance academics by offering services, programs, activities which foster an inclusive, collaborative and student-engaged learning environment. The office advises SGA and Clubs & Organizations, oversees the co-curricular transcript, promotes diversity & wellness, provides leadership development opportunities and oversees commencement and Campus Spiritual Life. The office is located in A110. Students and/or staff are here from 8am - 9pm, Monday through Thursday and 8am - 5pm on Friday.
The co-curricular transcript program is an important part of your involvement at USF. You may choose from a variety of activities, awards, research and programs to populate you own co-curricular transcripts that you can use when applying to graduate schools and in your job search.
The process is SIMPLE and as EASY as 1, 2, 3.

Spiritual growth and development occurs naturally in college life, and that's why the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee offers students, staff and faculty the services of a campus chaplain and a program in support of spiritual development.
The Campus Chaplain listens, gives counsel, provides spiritual direction and helps network students with local resources for their specific religion or denominational body. Working together with campus ministry, students may find themselves called to social justice projects, candlelight vigils or special services such as pastoral prayer or Soulful Sundowns, a form of young adult worship. The chaplain, with the assistance of other approved, ordained clergy, leads Transitions, a weekly interfaith support group for anyone going through change and challenges. This drop-in gathering occurs Wednesdays at 5pm and is open to everyone regardless of religious perspective.
To contact the Campus Chaplain directly, call 941-309-0200, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook contact: Campus Chaplain. The Chaplain also has a mailbox in the USFSM SGA Office.
