Message from YOUR Dean of Students

Welcome to YOUR Student Life Experience at SF State!

We could not be more excited you are here and a part of our Gator family.  We hope that this will be one of the best learning experiences you will have in your life!

Student Life is the compilation of living and learning experiences you will have during your time as a Gator. It will be shaped by the defining moments of your first year. It will be molded in the time you spend living on campus or attending the many programs, activities, and events available exclusively to you as an SF State student. It will evolve and deepen with the student organizations you’ll join, the leadership opportunities and professional development you’ll pursue, and the health and wellness programs you’ll benefit from—all these and many more opportunities in YOUR Student Life Experience at SF State will support and enhance your academic success and career objectives.

Our Student Life Team is dedicated to supporting you as you grow and develop as individuals and leaders within our SF State community. In times like these, when unprecedented measures disrupt the normal visions of what life on campus might look like for each of us, we are committed to reinforcing our support of all Gators, defining the future of Student Life, and facilitating authentic moments of care and connection with each of you. You inspire us to innovate meaningful ways to serve you in person, online, and everywhere in between!  We know that YOUR Student Life Experience is imperative to your success here at SF State, and it will shape who you when you graduate and immerse in life beyond and outside of the university.

That is why, above all else, you are not alone on your academic journey at SF State and the Division of Student Life is here for you! We are committed to helping create an inclusive campus community where every student belongs and the student experience matters.  We believe that every student has the capacity to live a purposeful life and can positively impact the world.

We are the place where you can live, lead, and learn to be yourself and make a difference!

So, we’re here and we’re ready, but are YOU ready to be transformed in Student Life?  Start by following us @LifeAtSFState and logging into GatorXperience to learn more about all the ways to get involved, supported, and connected. Let’s launch YOUR Student Life Experience today, Gators! 

Be Healthy, Be Well, Go Gators!
