Student Life and Success is the place to go to get involved on campus, to build community, and for holistic support to strengthen and support the college experience at UC Blue Ash. We provide programs, services, and resources to help students connect, engage, learn and grow both in and outside the classroom. We partner closely with the Office of Inclusive Excellence on a number of engagement opportunities too!

Through cocurricular programs – like success coaching and leadership positions in the department – students will learn and demonstrate strong academic and professional skills. The department also offers extracurricular programs – like Welcome Week, Fall Fest and student organizations – to expose students to a vibrant and exciting community.
